Queen's University

Earn credits while continuing to develop your music education with one-on-one lessons!

 

Do you have a music background? We offer one-on-one instrumental or vocal instruction for students who are not music majors. MUSC 124 is a 6.0 unit course. It consists of 23 individual weekly one-hour lessons (or an equivalent amount of time every fortnight). Students can take 124 at any point in their Queen's studies (as long as they pass the audition) and continue thereafter throughout your time at Queen's.

Students are expected to practice weekly, and play a final jury examination held in the week following the end of classes in April. So for example, by successfully auditioning and registering in MUSC 124, a non-music Queen’s student who has taken piano lessons for many years can continue taking lessons for a full credit!

Experience Required:

To participate in MUSC 124 you must pass an audition and have at least i) Royal Conservatory Grade IX (or equivalent) for pianists; or ii) Grade VIII piano and Grade VIII organ (or equivalent) for organists; or iii) Grade VIII (or equivalent) for all other instrumentalists and vocalists.
