Secondary lessons are open to enrolled conservatory, double-degree, and arts and sciences students. There are no prerequisites for secondary lessons.

Many conservatory programs and divisions offer lessons for credit for beginners, while others prefer some experience on an instrument in either non-credit or private lessons prior to an audition for lessons for credit. Faculty- or student-taught lesson placement may be based on skill and or availability of teachers within the division.

For more information, contact the faculty listed under “Faculty Contacts and Instruments’’ on the Auditions and Consent web page.

Students must have 2 credits of room in their schedule in order to audition for secondary lessons for credit with either a student or faculty instructor.

Please note: Completion of music theory and aural skills is not a requirement of arts and sciences or conservatory students prior to registration for secondary lessons.

Artist Diploma Students (ADIP) are not permitted to register for secondary lessons due their underload credit restriction.

Secondary Lesson Consent/Audition Form Fall 2018 will be available in August. You must use valid Obie email account to access.
