Applied Music Lessons
Applied music lessons in piano, voice, guitar, bass, drums, violin, flute, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, and cello may be taken by non-music majors as well as those majoring in music. The professor of the private lesson will determine the level of the student and begin his program at the appropriate level of technical development. Representative repertoire from historical eras of music will be chosen to develop technical accomplishment and skills for ministry. Twelve 1/2 hour lessons are given per semester for 1 credit, or twelve 1 hour lessons for 2 credits. For each half-hour private lesson per week, five hours of individual practice are expected. A 300-course level will be assigned for applied music lessons taken by Music majors and minors. A 100-course level designation is assigned to applied music lessons taken by non-music majors. Music lessons cannot be audited.
Music practice rooms are available for students taking an applied lesson. Piano/Voice practice rooms are available on the 2nd floor of the Fine Arts Building. Rooms 117, 121 and 129 are available only to those students taking lessons in drums, guitar or bass guitar, as well as leaders of ‘Entry’ worship teams and those preparing for either a Senior Recital or Performance Prep concert. These rooms must be reserved in order to be used. See the Fine Arts website for instructions on reserving practice rooms.
