Performance Study

Performance study courses are offered both fall and spring, and may be repeated for credit. Music majors and minors, Presidential Arts Scholarship students, and other students with skills or potential appropriate to the department's select ensembles are eligible for private lessons. Eligibility and placement for students new to private performance study are determined at a placement fair held at the beginning of each semester. For courses numbered 1511 through 1572, students may not register in the same semester for both the 1 and 2 credit course in the same instrument. Mus 1061, 1071, 1081, 1083, 1091, 1095, and 1151 do not include individual lessons and do not require a supplementary fee. All other performance study courses include individual lessons and require a supplementary fee. Supplementary fees for private performance courses are nonrefundable after the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters; consult the Music Department for details.

The supplementary fee is waived during the fall and spring semesters for full-time music majors and minors and for Presidential Arts Scholars in Music.

Required practice: a minimum of three hours a week for 1-credit courses and six hours a week for 2-credit courses.
