Applied Lessons



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. Click here for a list of the Applied Lessons we offer. 

There are two categories of applied lessons: 

MUSC 280: a thirty-minute lesson each week.

MUSC 380: a sixty-minute lesson each week. Music 380 lessons are reserved for Music Majors only.


Enrollment in Applied Music is not guaranteed and students will be asked to apply each semester to receive applied instruction. Students whose major or minor require Applied Lessons will be given priority according to the following structure:

  • Music Major Students: One 380, and up to two additional 280s each semester (Must submit a separate application for each course)
  • Music Minor Students: One 280 each semester
  • Musical Theatre Minors: One 280 each semester (up to four semesters guaranteed)
  • Non-Music Majors or Minors: By audition only as space allows (See audition instructions below)
