Department of Music

Private Lessons

Students may take private lessons in voice, piano, guitar, and a variety of orchestral and band instruments.

Score Library The Union College Department of Music is home to an extensive collection of choral, orchestral and chamber music scores intended for both classroom study and use by our many ensembles. The library is constantly growing under the guidance of our Director of Performance.

Please contact the Director of Music Performance, Shou-Ping Liu, for a list of the studio instructors, all of whom teach the lessons at Taylor Music Center. The cost of lessons is not included in the College's tuition. It costs $500 per term for ten lessons of 50 minutes each. After completing three terms satisfactorily, a student earns one-course credit. Two practicum credits may count toward graduation. The Registrar records all terms of lessons that a student completes satisfactorily on the student’s transcript, including those beyond the two credits. With the approval of the studio instructor and after completing a jury, a student may perform at the student recital held at the end of each term.
