Minor Lessons

Individual music instruction at the Peabody Conservatory, called minor lessons, is designed for students with significant experience as instrumentalists, vocalists, or composers. Auditions are necessary to register for minor lessons, which earn credit. (Peabody students, please contact the Minor Lessons Coordinator for placement requirements and questions. You will also be asked to fill out one of the online forms below.)

All students must now fill out an online form by Monday, January 10, 2022.

Audition deadline via video submission will be Friday, January 14, 2022.

Lessons may be 30 or 60 minutes in length, and registered students will receive one elective credit per half hour. Interdivisional registration forms must be signed and submitted by the Homewood add/drop deadline.

The additional cost for Peabody students for AY 2021-22 is $872 for half hour lessons (1 credit) or $1,744 for one hour lessons (2 credits). Students are not permitted to self-register on SIS; Peabody students must submit signed add forms and pay their bill in full by Peabody’s add deadline.
