Applied Lessons

Important message for the Spring 2021 semester enrollment: The department will not be accepting new Applied Music students, unless it is a required course for your major or minor. Please contact Haysun Kang or Kirsten Hedegaard with any questions.

Applied Music is a one-credit course consisting of individual private lessons, culminating in a juried performance at the end of the semester. Additional performance opportunities may include studio recitals, master classes, and the Honors Recital. Applied Music also provides more enjoyment and opportunities for current or aspiring members of large ensembles, such as University Chorale, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and Wind Ensemble.

There are two categories of applied lessons: 

MUSC 280: Applied Music is a one-credit course consisting of a thirty-minute lesson each week.

MUSC 380: Advanced Applied Music is a one-credit course consisting of a sixty-minute lesson each week. To be considered for MUSC 380, a student must be a Music Major and receive permission from the department.
