Private Instruction


Students are required to take fifteen one-hour private lessons per semester. Please see p. 60 for a list of approved private instruction faculty. The rate for private instruction is $1500 per semester and includes the cost of CJC room rental. Private lessons are scheduled on a to-be-arranged basis between student and teacher. All fifteen hours of private instruction must be completed within the semester in which the student is enrolled.

Please note: In addition to the 8-credit Private Instruction requirement, students may choose to use 4 Elective credits toward private instruction on an instrument/ voice other than their primary instrument/voice. For example, a guitarist pursuing a career as a singer/ songwriter may take up to 4 Elective credits of Private Instruction in vocal technique.
