All UC Davis students are welcome to take intermediate to advanced music lessons through the Department of Music. To schedule lessons and auditions, contact the appropriate applied faculty member.
During their first or second year at UC Davis, declared music majors are eligible for one free year of lessons.
Music majors continuing with lessons beyond their first year of free lessons pay $120 per quarter for the equivalent of 10 half-hour lessons and continue to enroll in Music 131.
Lessons are available to non-music majors on a space-available basis only. The fee for non-majors is $240 per quarter for the equivalent of 10 half-hour lessons. For more information, contact the appropriate applied faculty member.
Lesson subsidies may be available to students that are members of the concert band, symphony, chorus, early music ensemble, and others. Please see your advisor or ensemble director for more information.
How to Pay
Payments can be cash or checks payable to “UC Regents.” Please submit to Tracie Dang in the music department office (Room 112, Music Building). Payments must be made by the third week of class. Members of large ensembles may qualify for a partial rebate. For more information, contact Tracie Dang.
Want to find the weak spots in your jury piece? Trying out a new interpretation? There is a new opportunity for music majors to perform and to receive feedback in an informal setting. Twice a quarter, on the third Friday of the month, the music department will host a performance workshop, or salon. Sign-up three weeks prior to the salon.
