Graduate Applied Music Instruction

Graduate students taking applied instruction should enroll in Music 261~Graduate Applied Instruction (one hour - 3 credits) or Music 61 (half hour - 2 credits). Instructions for enrolling in lessons can be found here.

M.A. students with an emphasis in performance practice or ethnomusicology are eligible for 6 quarters of one-hour, or 2 half-hour, private lessons free of charge.  Students with an emphasis in composition are not eligible for free lessons, but may participate in lesson scholarship auditions if nominated by their applied instructors. In case an applied area approved for study by the Music Graduate Committee and graduate adviser is not currently taught on campus, a graduate student may petition to use the amount provided to apply to lessons with an appropriate off-campus teacher with sponsorship of a music faculty member.

Private lessons are available for credit in the following areas: bassoon, cello, clarinet, double bass, drumset, flute, fguitar/lute, horn, oboe, percussion, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, viola, violin, and voice.

For students who do not qualify for free lessons, one-hour lessons cost $650 per quarter and half-hour lessons $350 per quarter. Music graduate students are eligible for a refund of $150 on hour lessons and $75 for half-hour lessons.
