Private Lesson Subsidization

 

For Students Enrolled in Private Lessons

 

Applied lessons at private colleges typically add a significant financial burden to the cost of a college education for a music major, but not at Edgewood! We are proud to provide top-quality applied lessons at a very minimal cost.

 

Students who elect to take advantage of the subsidized lesson program typically donate one hour of work per week in exchange for subsidization of their private lesson, with such simple jobs as handing out programs at concerts or setting up for a rehearsal.

 

Contact the department chair for current information regarding subsidization of lesson fees for music majors, minors, and members of designated performing ensembles.
