Procedures and Opportunities for Music Major Scholarships

Music Lesson Scholarships

Music majors are eligible to apply for music lesson scholarships to cover the cost of private lessons on one major instrument or voice for 50-minute lessons and one minor instrument or voice for 30-minute lessons. In special circumstances, a major may request a scholarship for two major areas of study (two 50-minute lessons).

Music minors are also eligible to apply for music lesson scholarships to cover the cost of four semesters of 30-minute lessons on one major instrument or voice. 50-minute lessons require special permission from the teacher, advisor, and Music Department Chair. Minors must complete an application with the Music Department Chair for the degree program to be eligible for the scholarship. 

All majors and minors must submit a fee statement to Dr. Craycraft at the beginning of each semester. The fee statement must accurately list the music lesson fees; check your music fees/registration carefully. 

Students may assume that their scholarships may be renewed as long as they are music majors in good standing and:

  1. Maintain full-time enrollment at the College.

  2. Maintain at least a "B" average in music lessons and ensemble.

  3. Maintain a cumulative average of "B." Incompletes constitute unsatisfactory progress and will jeopardize your scholarship eligibility.
