You can sign up for private lessons on many instruments and voice, providing the instructors have space after the music majors have signed up. You will have one 50-minute lesson per week for the semester; required practice time will vary depending on the instrument and your instructor's judgment. You are welcome to use the practice rooms in the Arbury Fine Arts Building.
Registering for lessons takes place in person only. Contact the Music Office for scheduling and registration forms (firstname.lastname@example.org; 989-964-4159). Lessons earn one credit per semester; there is an extra fee of $225 (January 2020).
