Earning Credit for Lessons
Music Majors and Certificate Students can earn up to two academic credits for private studio instruction by enrolling in MUS 298 (Fall) and MUS 299 (Spring): Independent Instruction in Voice or Instrument. In addition to enrolling through the Registrar's Office, all students must sign up for lessons through the Music Department during the course-selection period. Students must complete both MUS 298 and MUS 299 in the same academic year to receive one course unit of credit. This allows for the extraordinary opportunity of incorporating in-depth performance study into your academic career.
The University subsidizes the cost of all private studio lessons, which are FREE for all Music Majors, Certificate Students and Music Graduate Students. Students who are active members of major departmental ensembles (Princeton University Orchestra, Princeton University Sinfonia, Glee Club/Chamber Choir, and the Jazz Ensembles) receive a 50% subsidy towards the cost of lessons in their major instrument. All students who receive financial aid, regardless of their affiliation with the Music Department, receive further financial support for private studio lessons.
