Private Music Study / Lessons - Applied Music

The Music Department provides students the opportunity for private study of instrumental and vocal performance with the outstanding faculty in our Applied Music Program.

Instruction is available in a wide variety of western instruments, instruments from other world, ethnic, and folk traditions, as well as studies in voice (in many styles). Lessons may be taken for half credit (0.5) or not for credit. Extra tuition is required for lessons and private study.

There are three types of scholarships generally available for private lessons: ensemble, financial aid, and music major/minor scholarships. In order to receive any scholarship money, you must apply through Edith Auner during the first week of each semester.

You DO NOT have to be a music major or minor to take private lessons at Tufts. All members of the Tufts community can take lessons through the department. To arrange private study, you must set up an appointment with Edith Auner, the applied music coordinator during the first two weeks of each semester. Extra office hours are held during those time periods.

> Classical Piano
> Classical Voice
> Wind Instruments
> Brass
> Strings and Early Music
