Elective Studio Lessons


Elective studio lessons are open and available to all university students and staff. Elective studio and music extension classes are registered through the Special Music Office. There is a fee that is associated with Elective Studio lessons. One may choose to take lessons for credit or not. The fee is assessed in either case and if opting to receive credit, a letter grade is issued (no pass/fail).

All Music Extension elective studio lessons and classes assess a fee, whether taking the lessons for credit or not. This fee is posted to the student account after the third week of classes and paid off through the HUB.
