Registering for Private Music Instruction

There are three steps to registering for private music instruction:

  1. Choose the appropriate title and course number (MAP XXXXC or MAP XXXXS)
  2. Choose the desired or advised length of private instruction (1 or 2 credit hours)
  3. Choose the appropriate section offering by instrument or area (listed below)

If you are not a music major or minor, you must receive permission from the chair of the Music Department before registering for applied performance (private lesson) instruction!

Students who are not majoring in the arts areas, and those not declaring a minor in music, may enroll for group performance instruction in Class Piano (MUS 1101 non-major section), Class Guitar (0087 or 0187), and Class Voice (MUS 1104). Exceptions to this policy require approval of the chair of the Music Department and are contingent upon faculty availability.

All students registering for either MAP XXXXC or MAP XXXXS must register for Recital Lab (MUS 0040 for music majors, and MUS 0041 for music minors).

One-credit-hour courses are 30 minutes in length; 2-credit-hour courses are 1 hour in length.
