Applied Music Lessons


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs in the College of Liberal Arts

All university students may take applied music, although music majors and minors are given first priority for available space. A fee of $150 per semester for one half-hour lesson per week is required for all applied individual instruction. Students taking applied music must also enroll in an appropriate ensemble: symphonic choir, concert choir, university women’s chorus, orchestra, marching and concert band, or symphonic band and wind ensemble. A maximum of 13 units in ensembles is allowed toward graduation.

Students receive a half-hour individual applied lesson for one unit and an hour lesson for two, three, or four units. A jury examination is required at the end of the semester for all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in applied music. A minimum of one hour of daily preparation is required for each unit.

A maximum of eight units of applied instruction at each level may be applied to the bachelor of arts degree. A maximum of four units of applied instruction at the 700 level may apply toward a graduate degree. All students entering the bachelor of music applied program must satisfactorily complete an entrance audition; an upper-division audition must be completed after 16 lower-division units. Any student seeking upper-division or graduate status in applied music must satisfactorily complete an audition ( MUSA 753  - MUSA 770  do not require an audition.)
