Private Lessons

Private studio study is an important component of both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees offered at Hartwick College.

Artists-in-Residence teach private lessons and these are open to any student on campus, pending studio availability.  Each private lesson, whether hour or 1/2 hour is given 1 credit hour per semester. 

Private lesson fees are supported in part by the College. The student cost for hour lessons is $598 per semester; the cost for 1/2 hour lessons is $299.  Music majors receive further support for hour lessons on their primary instrument or vocal area so that the resulting fee per semester is $299. Contact the Department of Music for fees for part-time students and for lessons taken for no academic credit.

Majors are expected to practice at least two hours daily.

Course registration instructions can be found in the College Catalog.
