Private Music Instruction

For this academic year only, the school is providing a promotional discount to woodwinds, brass, and percussion students with approximately 15% off private lessons.

A Registration Fee of $25 will be charged for all students who register on or after February 3.

Inquiry for Private Instruction

Private lessons for music students is the chance to receive intensive training and focus on specific skill development. To request private lessons, students must submit an inquiry form. Note: Inquiry forms should only be submitted if you’re interested in private lessons or wish to audition for an ensemble. Approximately two weeks after submitting the form, you’ll be notified by the appropriate Colburn Community School of Performing Arts representative regarding an interview and/or audition.

Inquiry Form

When meeting with department members, you may be asked to play a music piece as well as answer questions. Our faculty wishes to gauge your level of interest and learning style, as well as assess which days and times lessons can be scheduled. Due to faculty and studio availability along with high demand for private lessons, there’s no guarantee all requests will be granted. If a faculty member requests a lesson with the student to determine placement, a new student will be charged for one lesson through the Community School office.

Costs for private lessons, based on 16 weekly lessons in the academic year from January to May:

  • $1,232 for 30 minutes
  • $1,760 for 45 minutes
  • $2,240 for 60 minutes
  • $3,264 for 90 minutes

For new students beginning private study after August, tuition may be pro-rated according to the number of weeks left in the academic year. Tuition for private lessons is updated each academic year, and is listed in the Schedule of Classes. Need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships are available at the beginning of the academic year. Learn more about the requirements to qualify for financial assistance.

Ensemble Auditions

Collaboration is an essential element to any music educational program, so we’ve created numerous opportunities for students to showcase their talents and advancing skills.

Auditions for the 2022-23 academic year are now being held for the ensembles programs. Vocal ensembles will not be offered during spring 2022. Visit specific ensemble and orchestra pages for more details.
