Private Lessons

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

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.
