Secondary lessons are private lessons open to enrolled Conservatory, Double-Degree, and Arts and Sciences students.

Pre-Requisites for Secondary Lessons

There are no pre-requisites for secondary lessons. Many departments offer lessons for credit for beginners, while others prefer some experience on an instrument in either non-credit or private lessons prior to an audition for lessons for credit. Faculty or Student taught lesson placement may be based on skill and/or availability of teachers within the department. Please feel free to contact the faculty for more information.

Students must have 2 credits of room in their schedule in order to audition for secondary lessons for credit with either a student or faculty instructor.

Please Note: Completion of Theory & Aural Skills is NOT a requirement of Arts and Sciences or Conservatory students prior to registration for secondary lessons.

Artist Diploma Students (ADIP) are not permitted to register for secondary lessons due their underload credit restriction.
