Private Lessons

Spring 2020 Lesson Sign Up

The application period for private lessons in the College House Music Program is now closed, and we can not accept any more applications.

Permits for MUSC 005 will be issued on Friday, Jan. 24.


In cooperation with the Office of College Houses and Academic Services, the Department of Music at Penn offers those interested in pursuing private lessons the opportunity to study with the most highly acclaimed musicians in the region. The variety of instructors available to students through the Blutt College House Music Program assists students in finding a good match for their current skill level, and this whether they are just beginning to explore a musical instrument or are already accomplished musicians in their own right. All students may elect to take their lessons for credit (MUSC 005). Declared music majors and minors may also choose to audition for the more rigorous applied music course in solo performance, the Marian Anderson Solo Performance Program (MUSC 010)—a course that requires juries and a rather more intensive engagement with the student’s instrument or voice part than is expected in Music 005.
