Information on how to declare a Music major or minor.

Declared majors receive their first set of lessons at no charge and their second set at half price.  Declared minors receive their first set of lessons for up to 4 semesters at no charge. 

Other scholarships may be available to students who receive academic financial aid.

The Music Department requests student evaluation of the lesson/class/ensemble instructors at the end of each semester. A quick survey will be emailed to enrolled students with responses due before the last day of the semester. Participation is encouraged, but not mandatory.

This evaluation can be of significant benefit to the faculty member by identifying perceived strengths and weaknesses in teaching, thereby leading to personal and professional growth.
