Music lessons are available for credit to nonmusic majors. New students interested in lessons for credit should attend the information meeting during Wildcat Welcome week. Returning students with questions regarding lessons may call or e-mail the appropriate program coordinator. All students interested in lessons must sign up for an audition. Variable fees apply to each course and are specified under the course listing.
NOTE: Please make sure you read audition information regarding these classes.
Piano and Organ (GEN MUS 115, 116) Weekly attendance at lessons, at least one to two hours of daily practice, and a final performance jury at the end of the quarter are required. Piano students receive eight 45-minute lessons per quarter; organ students receive eight 30-minute lessons per quarter.
Instrumental (GEN MUS 120, 125, 130) Students receive eight 30-minute lessons per quarter.
Private Voice (GEN MUS 160, 260, 360) Students in 160 receive eight 30-minute lessons per quarter; those in 260 and 360 receive ten 30-minute lessons per quarter.
Class Voice (GEN MUS 133) Because of space limitations, not everyone who auditions can be scheduled for private lessons. Voice students not selected for private lessons are assigned to 133 Class Voice. Students in this class receive nine weekly group lessons as well as three private lessons per quarter.
All private lessons and Class Voice lessons are offered for variable credit (0–.5). Students accepted for private study or Class Voice will be given a permission number; no lessons will be given until you are registered. For registration assistance, see page 2, Frequently Asked Questions, “May I take lessons for credit?” Quarterly registration fees will be billed to the student’s account. To register after the first week of classes, go to Ryan Center 2-115 for late-registration approval; a fee will be charged for courses added late.
