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.

Financial Aid
The Department of Music fully subsidizes the cost of all private studio lessons to all 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, Trego Singers and the Jazz Ensembles) receive a 50% subsidy towards the cost of lessons in their major instrument. The music lesson/financial aid policy that is in place for the current academic year is being reviewed and will be revised for future academic years. Please check back soon.
