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 before 5pm on January 8th for the Winter
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.)
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.
Performance Track Jury Auditions will take place Friday, May
14, 2021, 3:00–5:00 pm in the Recital Hall at the Ann E.
