Music Lessons

Students who intend to major in music must take lessons on their major instrument at the beginning and intermediate level each semester they are on campus. The student will pay according to the fee schedule for each semester of applied lessons taken prior to a student declaring music as a major. The cost of music lessons that are required for the major (this may include 1-2 half hour lessons or an hour lesson, depending on the emphasis chosen by the student) will be waived for majors beginning the first semester after they have declared such a major (as early as the first semester sophomore year). The Registrar will provide the Business Office with a list of declared music majors prior to each billing cycle (July and December). Any student taking a music lesson(s) who is on the list will receive a credit for the music lesson(s) charge if the lesson(s) is (are) necessary to complete the major requirements (as demonstrated on the degree audit maintained by the Registrar's Office). If a music major student changes majors, but continues taking lessons, the student will begin paying for lessons at the current per-credit tuition charge beginning the first semester following such a change. Music minors will no longer have their lesson fees waived, beginning with the fall 2000 entering class.
