Performance of Music: Individual and Class Instruction

Students playing in the orchestra

Students may enroll for instrumental or vocal study in the Music Department. Individual private lessons are offered weekly at two levels. Most lessons last 30 minutes, but students who have passed the Qualifying Examination for study at Level II may choose to take 60-minute lessons. For beginning-level pianists and singers, group lessons are also offered. All lessons are offered for academic credit with letter grades. Lessons may be used to fulfill the Area 6 Breadth of Study Requirement, subject to certain restrictions. Students taking lessons are expected to participate regularly in the appropriate performing organizations to the full extent of their ability.
