Music Applied

Private instruction on instruments and in voice is available to students majoring or minoring in music, and to other students who desire to gain or improve proficiency in voice or some instrument. Students must have their own instrument. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 346 or equivalent developmental course. Private instruction is an academic transfer course.

Private instruction is available in voice, piano, organ, flute/piccolo, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet/cornet, french horn, trombone, euphonium/baritone, tuba, percussion (drum-set), guitar (electric, classical and acoustic), violin, viola, cello and string bass.

Lesson times for music majors (one hour per week) and non-music majors (one half hour per week) are subject to counseling by the music faculty. Students are assigned course numbers on the basis of audition or conference by the music faculty only or with instructor approval.

The numbering system for private instruction is as follows: A four digit number is used; the first number is the level (freshman or sophomore); the second number is the amount of credit hour a student will receive. A “1” is for a half-hour lesson per week; a “2“ is for an hour lesson per week. The last two numbers correspond to the instrument or voice and the sequence in which the lesson is taken: 11 and 21 prefix (lecture 1, lab 0), and 12 and 22 prefix (lecture 1, lab 1).

Example: MUAP 1137 = Freshman/One Hour Credit/Trumpet/First Semester

Students enrolled for a half-hour of individual instruction per week, minimum practice is five hours each week. Students enrolled for one hour of individual instruction per week, minimum practice is 10 hours each week. (Piano majors-18 hours each week) Students may consult with an individual instructor for more information about material to be covered in private instruction.

A music lab fee of $80 is required for a half-hour lesson, and a music lab fee of $160 is required for an hour lesson. All other tuition fees must be paid according to the College of the Mainland fee structure.

Once a student is enrolled for the private lesson, it is his or her responsibility to contact the instructor or the Fine Arts office to establish a lesson time. Call 409-933-8348.

Students enrolled in private instruction are required to enroll in an appropriate ensemble. Some exceptions may be considered depending on students’ level of performance on their instruments. Students should contact a private lesson instructor to see if they are exempt.
