All Krieger School students may take lessons at either the Peabody Conservatory or the Peabody Preparatory.
Lessons at the Peabody Conservatory, called minor lessons, are designed for people with significant experience on their instrument. Minor lessons are by audition only.
To register, contact the Office of Academic Advising or the Office of the Registrar and request the Peabody Conservatory Interdivisional Program Initial Enrollment Form and an Interdivisional Registration Form. You will be signed up for an audition at Peabody, which will take place shortly before the start of classes each semester. Forms must be submitted by early August for lessons during the fall semester. Lessons may be a half hour or an hour. You receive one elective credit per half hour.
The Peabody Preparatory serves the broader musical community. Its students range in age from infants to senior citizens and in skill from beginners to soon-to-be-professionals. Former students include Philip Glass, Hilary Hahn, and Tori Amos. An audition is not necessary to enroll in Preparatory lessons, although one may be necessary for teacher assignment purposes.
Register online or call 667-208-6640. You will also need to fill out and submit a Cross Registration Form from the Office of the Registrar. Forms must be submitted by mid-August for lessons during the fall semester. Lessons may be a half hour, 45 minutes, or an hour. You do not receive elective credit for lessons at the Preparatory.
