Applied Music Lessons

  • Private lessons offered by the Department of Music are open to all University students but enrollment is limited to available staffing. As a result, priority for enrollment is given on the following basis: (1) music majors, (2) music minors, (3) other full-time University students, (4) other part-time University students.
  • Beginners normally enroll in class instruction instead of private lessons.
  • Students wishing to enroll in private lessons must see a full-time faculty member in the respective area in order to be assigned an instructor.
  • An additional fee is charged for private lessons, which includes the use of a practice room.
  • Students enrolled for applied music are expected to practice a minimum of one hour a day for each hour of credit being received.
  • A jury exam at the end of the semester is required for all music majors, music minors, and other students enrolled for 2 hours or more of credit.
  • Private lessons are not given during final examination periods.
  • Individual lessons missed during the semester will not be made up unless satisfactory notice is given to the instructor at least one day before the absence.
  • Private lessons are 30 minutes or 1 hour per week based upon the student’s enrollment objective:
