Private Lessons

Spring 2022 Lesson Sign Up

The online application for lessons through the College House Music Program for the Spring 2022 semester is now open. You can access it here once you and an instructor have agreed to work together.

You must first arrange the lessons with an instructor. Here is our list of instructors with their contact information.


PLEASE NOTE: The deadline to submit your application for lessons will be Thursday, January 20.

ALSO NOTE: Permits for MUSC 0050 will be issued as soon as possible after receiving applications. All permits will be in the system by Friday, January 21. 

It is your responsibility to check Penn In Touch and register yourself for MUSC 0050 if you choose to do so.


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 0050). 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 0100A, B)—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.
