All UC Davis students are welcome to take intermediate to
advanced music lessons through the Department of Music.
How to Enroll
To enroll in lessons, first contact the music lecturer that corresponds to your
area of study. Each instructor will have a conversation with you
about your previous experience and may or may not choose to ask
you for audition material.
Lesson fees are $300 per quarter for the equivalent of ten
All students (majors and non-majors) taking lessons
will need to pay the lesson fee by January 14 (see
“How to Pay” below) regardless of their lesson scholarship
Lesson scholarships are only available to music majors
(declared/active), who may apply for a scholarship each
quarter. This scholarship will offset the entire cost of
lessons for that quarter. Priority goes to students who apply by
the fifth day of instruction.
Those who qualify will receive a scholarship check to offset
the entire cost of lessons for one quarter (if a student is
receiving financial aid, the scholarship may not arrive as a
check, but rather will be applied to the financial aid,
decreasing the overall debt balance).
The student will still need to pay the $300 lesson fee by
January 14. (See “How to Pay” below.)
If you are a music major and you are prevented from receiving
scholarship money, please contact Karen

We regret that we are not able to provide
scholarships for non-majors.
