Private Instruction in Applied Music

Private instruction is available for all instruments, voice, and composition. Each one-half hour lesson per week, plus a minimum of six hours practice per week, for one semester grants one hour credit. Students may take either one or two hours credit on an instrument each semester.

Credit received in applied music can be applied to the three-hour creativity explored requirement of Global Perspectives. Any student expecting to present a recital must pass a recital permission audition during the semester preceding the semester in which the recital will be given. Additional fees are charged for private instruction in applied music. Information concerning applied music can be obtained in the music department office.

Refund Policy:

It will be our policy to prorate the applied music fees for students who withdraw from private lessons. Their tuition charge will be based on the clearly defined Official Withdrawal & Refund Policy. The fees, however, are based on weekly lessons, and are most fairly handled by proration. The compensation of faculty will, likewise, be prorated based on the number of lessons given. The dates selected for proration will be the actual date of withdrawal as shown on the withdrawal form in the registrar’s office.
