Individual Studio Study and Performance-Related Policies

Official Dress

The Jacobs School of Music recognizes both the importance of a student's right to individual gender expression and the necessity for a unified and coherent look for ensemble performances. For public performances of Jacobs School of Music ensembles, students may choose either of the following two options:

  • Black tuxedo, white shirt, black bow tie, black socks, and black shoes; or
  • Solid long-sleeved black blouses, floor-length black skirts or black dress slacks, black stockings or socks, and black shoes.
Within these guidelines, individual ensembles may have more specific requirements, including costumes or uniforms where appropriate. Such dress codes will be made known to students at the beginning of each academic year, and students are encouraged to check their ensemble syllabus for further guidance. The Jacobs School of Music requires that students own concert attire by the beginning of the academic year.
