This course may be repeated for credit.

This course is open only to declared junior and senior music majors. Each instructor sets his or her criteria for accepting students. Private instrumental and vocal lessons meet for one hour weekly at a regularly scheduled time. Students contract to take 12 lessons. Students new to the Private Lessons Program must audition during the first week of classes and register during the Drop/Add period. Returning students also register during the Drop/Add period. Audition information will be posted in the Music Studios Lobby and on the Music Department web site (http://www.wesleyan.edu/music/privatelessonsauditions.html) prior to the start of the semester.

The current private lesson fee is $795 per semester. If the course is not dropped 24 hours prior to the third lesson, students will be charged the full course fee. A waiver for a portion of the private lessons fee is available for junior and senior music majors. Details regarding the music major waiver can be found on the Music Department web site or in Music Studios room 109.

Music majors may count two semesters of MUSC406 towards their performance credits of the music major.
