Private Instruction Course (1/2 course, 2 credit, one-hour lesson weekly for 12 weeks). Each studio focuses on building skills in technique, musicianship, and repertory, enabling students to gain proficiency in performance. For specific studio guidelines, students are encouraged to contact the instructor prior to registering. An end-of-term “exam” (called a “jury” in music) is a demonstration of what you have learned over the semester, usually including the performance of a short piece. Unlike juries for 1/2-hour lessons (MUA 021-072), which are held at the instructor’s discretion, juries for one-hour lessons are heard by multiple members of the department faculty during the exam period.  An end-of-term Student Recognition Recital offers an optional public performance opportunity to those taking private music instruction at the 100-level.
