Private Lessons

Applied Music Studies

The Applied Music Studies program offers students private lessons on percussion instruments, piano and guitar. There are also instructors to work in small groups with students interested in chamber music and vocal jazz. Instructors are well-known musicians from the area. Lessons are scheduled on a semester basis. Students registering for a package of eight one-hour lessons may receive an hour of academic credit for the study by registering for BAND 12000 and completing a jury at the end of the semester or by performing in a concert or recital. Various lesson packages are also offered on a noncredit basis with a special lab fee based on the number of lessons scheduled. Students interested in the program should contact the Department of University Bands to register during the first week of each new semester.
