The Music Department at HWS offers private instruction in strings, brass, guitar, piano, percussion, voice, woodwinds, and jazz improvisation to beginning and experienced student musicians alike. Students who have studied in the past are encouraged (though not required) to bring a piece of music from their repertoire to play for the instructor during the first lesson. Weekly half-hour applied music lessons carry a one-half course credit per semester, the fee is $350 for fourteen half-hour lessons.
Contact the appropriate teacher to inquire about taking private lessons.
- Music lessons do not count toward the artistic process goal.
- Pianos are available for use in several practice rooms. All students/faculty/staff with an active OneCard may access practice rooms 319-321, and 323-326.
- Standard instrument locker space is available ($5 refundable deposit); contact Prof. Katherine Walker to arrange for storage.
