Applied Music

Applied Music Format

The Applied Music Program allows students to earn CU credit while receiving private or group music lessons. Private lessons are offered through Performance Music (PMUS). Group lessons are offered through Elective Music (MUEL). Students must furnish their own instruments, except piano and drum set.

Students receive nine (9) hours of private lessons or twenty (20) hours of group lessons (hand drum circle, beginning guitar, and group piano only)

Applied Music Credit

Students receive two (2) semester hours; courses can be taken for a letter grade, pass/fail, or no credit. You must indicate your preference before the 100% drop/add deadline. Incompletes are not permitted.
