Private Lessons

Private music instruction (FA 2570) is an excellent way to quickly advance your musicianship and reach new levels of playing or singing. Students receive .5 cocurricular credits for taking a semester's worth of weekly 45-minute lessons with a local professional musician. Lessons are available on brass, woodwind, and string instruments, and harp, guitar, piano, and voice. For more information, email
