Private Lessons are available to children and adults of all experience levels — from beginners through the most advanced levels of study. Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis and are contingent upon teacher availability.

Students enrolled in Private Lessons are required to have a practice instrument available.

Students will also have opportunities to participate in recitals, repertoire and master classes, and either of our music certificate programs.

What’s Changing in the New Private Lesson Enrollment Process

  • In the new registration system, students no longer enroll themselves in private lessons
  • For this first summer term, both returning and new students will need to complete and submit the inquiry form to be enrolled in summer private lessons. This will again be the case in Fall 2018.
  • Beginning in Spring 2019, there is a “roll-over” process where returning students will automatically be enrolled from Fall to Spring and will not need to complete an inquire form.  Stay tuned for more on that later.

Access the new registration system here. During your first login, you will be prompted to create a password.

Your login ID is the Account Holder’s primary e-mail used in SIS (the old registration system) and you may still access SIS to obtain your primary e-mail at sis.jhu.edu/sswf.

Beginning April 2nd, follow these easy steps to enroll in Private Lessons for the summer!

  • Click-on “Private Lesson” on left side of the web page to begin and select “Returning Student” to submit the form.
  • The Preparatory administrative staff will:
    • receive the form and process enrollment;
    • notify the instructor; and
    • send confirmation email to you with the invoice
    • Instructor will contact you directly to confirm the time, day, and location of the lesson.

You submit invoice payment online to complete the enrollment process.

Placement

Students new to Private Lessons at Peabody must sign up for a placement interview via the online Inquiry process in the new ASAP student registration system and pay the $25 registration fee.

You can access the registration system here. Click on the Private Lessons button on the left side of the screen and follow the instructions for “New Students” to submit the inquiry form.

Once you register for the placement class and pay the $25 registration fee you will receive detailed instructions on the placement day process.

What to expect at the placement interview

During the placement interview students and/or parents discuss goals, program information, and scheduling needs. Students should be prepared to discuss first, second, third, and possibly fourth choices for scheduling with the faculty. A decision regarding the schedule will either be made during the interview or within a week of the interview. Students who have studied an instrument or a discipline prior to enrolling at the Preparatory should bring their instrument and/or any music or portfolio they have been working on with former teachers or programs. Beginners may be asked to demonstrate their musical potential in some way.

What to expect after the student is placed

The Preparatory Administrative staff will process your enrollment and email an invoice with payment due upon receipt. Your instructor will contact you to confirm lesson location, room, day, and time.

What if placement is not possible?

It is the desire of the Preparatory to accommodate as closely as possible the scheduling needs of the student. On those rare occasions when a student cannot be placed, a full refund of the $25 registration fee (per semester) will be issued. In keeping with University Policy, no refund can be processed until one month after the payment has been received or if there is a balance left on a student’s account.
