Fee Waivers for Music Majors
A variety of generous patrons of the music department have made
funds available to provide fee waivers for music majors who want
to continue lessons beyond the automatic three quarters of free
lessons. These waivers can be partial awards or cover the entire
$300 per quarter charge.
To be considered for a waiver, music majors must apply online EVERY
quarter via the webform. The due
date will be the fourth day of instruction (October 5 for
Fall Quarter, 2020) each quarter. There may not be enough funds
to grant waivers to everybody who applies, so please be careful
in providing the requested information; the department will
attempt to take care of the most urgent cases (those with
upcoming recitals, those with extraordinary skill/ability, those
nearing graduation, etc.) first.
Lessons are available to non-music majors on a space-available
basis. The fee for non-majors is $300 per quarter for the
equivalent of ten half-hour lessons. Priority goes to those
who are also enrolled in departmental ensembles. For more
information, contact the appropriate applied faculty member. Fee waivers
are also available to a limited number of students in the UC
Davis Symphony Orchestra or University Chorus. Fee waivers are
not available to members of other ensembles.
