Summer 2018

Private lessons are scheduled on an individual basis, and are based on teacher availability and student scheduling preferences. Students enrolled in private lessons will have the opportunity to perform in recitals during Fall & Spring Semesters and attend select Rowan University Music Department events for free.

  • Enrollment is based on a 15-week semester during Fall & Spring Semesters.
  • Summer enrollment is dependent on teacher availability, but typically up to 9 lessons are available.
  • Students enrolling mid-semester will have their tuition pro-rated for the remaining lessons.
  • Students are required to have a practice instrument available.
  • All private music instruction requires a placement interview/phone call with the Rowan Prep Director to best place a student with with an appropriate teacher.
