Students seeking to improve their playing or singing ability have the option of taking individual private lessons with about thirty professional musicians from the greater Boston-Providence area. Our Teaching Associates offer intensive instruction in piano, voice, and all the individual instrument families of the symphony orchestra, the wind ensemble and jazz ensemble. Students may also study organ, harpsichord, recorder, or non-western instruments such as tabla, oud, or sitar.
Lessons are offered by audition and for an additional fee. New students may audition at the beginning of the fall and the spring semesters. Students seeking credit are expected to attend and perform in the group classes, master classes, and juries arranged for their instrument group over the course of the term.

AMP THEORY TEST
Students in the Applied Music Program (AMP) can place out of theory (and therefore into another music course of their choice—see guidelines below) by passing a theory test. This theory test is recommended only for those students who have already studied theory.
DATE AND TIME OF THEORY TEST:
Wednesday, September 5, 2012
12:00 p.m. (noon)
Sign-up sheets will beposted in the Orwig lobby.
This test will be offered once a year on the first day of classes. Students who wish to take the test but are unable to take it at the specified time should be in touch with Arlene Cole immediately.
See AMP guidelines for complete Theory Requirement information.
NOTE: Students wishing to take MUSC 0550 will still need to take the placement exam for that course on Thursday Sept. 6 at 1:00pm in Orwig 315.
