This course may be repeated for credit.

Private instrumental and vocal lessons meet for one hour weekly at regularly scheduled times. Students contract to take 12 lessons. Each instructor sets his or her criteria for accepting students. Returning students register during the Drop/Add period. Students new to the Private Lessons Program must interview during the first week of classes and register during the Drop/Add period. Interview information and schedules will be posted in the Music Studios lobby and on the Music Department web site http://www.wesleyan.edu/music/lessons prior to the start of the semester.

Students will be billed $795 for 12 one-hour lessons through the Student Accounts Office. When students are accepted into the private lessons program, they become liable for the additional cost of lessons. If this course is not dropped 24 hours prior to the third lesson, students will be charged the full course fee.

Students must play in an ensemble for a semester or complete a semester of private lessons in their instrument (voice) of interest before applying for financial support from the Music Department. The student must also be receiving at least $10,000 aid from the University. The student's ensemble instructor or Private Lessons Instructor must submit a recommendation form in support of the student's application. Financial support applications may be obtained in the Music Department office and must be returned to the Music Department by the deadline indicated on the application. No applications will be accepted after 12 noon on that date.

Permission of the instructor is required.

Students who have registered for MUSC405 four (4) times will receive credit for four semesters of private lessons, whether it be in the same instrument/voice or a variety of instruments/voice.
