Students taking private lessons from our faculty can expect as a minimum commitment from their teacher:
- Eight private lessons of approximately one-hour duration. Some teachers may meet more often for shorter lessons.
- Two 2-hour masterclasses or equivalent, depending on the studio. Some studios may not have masterclasses, but instead two more 1-hour lessons.
- You should expect to see your teacher, in lessons and masterclasses, twelve hours during the semester.
The details of how this is executed, as well as policies about missed lessons, practice, performance and progress expectations, etc., are at the discretion of the individual teacher. Please consult with your teacher and see his/her syllabus for specific information.
All students who are taking private lessons are required to attend concerts. To enforce the policy, all private lesson registration has as a co-requisite, registration in MUSA 200. Students who do not sign up for MUSA 200 will automatically be registered for it.
