Private Lessons

Solo Flute practice

The department offers private music lessons to many students. We do not have a performance faculty; instead, we help to match students with excellent private teachers. We provide a subsidy -- in some cases, 100 percent of the cost of lessons -- and give academic credit for private lessons. In addition, the most accomplished music students may apply to receive transportation expenses to study with teachers off campus.

In many cases it isn't necessary to leave campus for private lessons. The department has invited a number of prominent musicians to teach in Lang Music Building. These are performers of the first rank, including musicians who have toured worldwide and appeared as soloists with the Philadelphia Orchestra and other major orchestras, opera houses, and recital series. Voice students are particularly fortunate, in that we provide a voice studio supervised by the faculty, as well as sessions with a first rate vocal coach.

Practice rooms are readily available in Lang Music Building. There are no sign-up sheets; just show up and play. Practice rooms are equipped with high-quality Steinway and Yamaha pianos. Also located in Lang Music Building is The Underhill Music and Dance Library, which provides access to a vast collection of books, scores, and audio recordings.
