MUAP Applied Music Studies | Performance Techniques

The heart of any music degree program is applied music studies, where a student takes private lessons from an experienced instructor. Cincinnati Christian University offers private applied instruction in piano, voice, guitar, brass instruments, percussion, and composition. Applied lessons in other instruments may be arranged through special agreement with an off-campus instructor. Students are assigned to teachers based on their level and ability, and on the teacher’s availability. No audit status is permitted. There is no refund of instruction fee after classes begin. Students enrolled in applied lessons on a major level are required to attend a weekly studio class that correlates with their private instruction. Studios provide group instruction to supplement the private lessons. Major and minor level applied lessons require a board exam at the end of each semester (except semesters in which students perform a recital). Elector or Worship instruction requires recital participation at the end of each semester.
