Description of Applied Music Courses (Private Music Lessons)

Cumberland Valley School of Music, located in Thomson Hall on the Wilson College campus, offers the opportunity for Wilson College students to take individual, private music lessons for credit. These courses can be used to partially satisfy fine arts graduation requirements as well as provide credit toward the music minor. Students can choose a band or orchestral instrument, voice, piano, organ, guitar, or drum set lessons. One half-credit requires 14 hours of instruction. Students are expected to practice five times per week for the same length as their lessons and are encouraged to participate in a recital, subject to the recommendation of the instructor. Students should have or rent the instrument (with the exception of piano). Practice studios are available in Thomson Hall through arrangements with the CVSM office.
