Music Private Lessons

Private instruction is available in three levels of difficulty:

  • Elective: For non-music majors; may be taken as a half-hour lesson per week (1 credit hour), or a onehour lesson per week (2 credit hours) depending on available staffing.
  • Pre-major: For music majors who have not reached the proficiency required for the freshman major level on their principal instrument; may be taken as a one-hour lesson per week (2 credit hours) only.
  • Major: Principle instrument for those planning to major in music performance, music education, music business, church music, theory, composition, and/or music therapy; may be taken as a one-hour lesson per week (2 credit hours) only.

All stated technical and literature requirements represent minimal standards and are intended as guidelines for achievement. Detailed information regarding technical and literature requirements is available from the Music Department .

For each one-half hour lesson per week, the student receives one semester hour of credit. All music majors taking private music lessons are required to take a jury examination at the end of each semester of study. Attendance and participation in student recitals and concerts is required by all music majors. All private lessons carry an Applied Music Fee. Private lessons in each of the levels of difficulty may be repeated for credit.
