Applied Music Fees and Policies

Many Stanford students (including non-Music majors) take music lessons with our outstanding faculty. Due to the diversity of experience needed for teaching applied music, students incur fees above tuition.


Fees for individual lessons:

  • $325 per quarter for Music majors
  • $650 per quarter for non-majors

Fees for group lessons:

  • $175 per quarter for majors
  • $200 per quarter for non-majors

Bills for lessons are prepared in the department and sent through Student Financial Services about six weeks into the quarter. Questions about bills should be directed to Rowen Leigh in the Department of Music Office, not to Student Financial Services.

Note that no refunds are given for lessons dropped after the deadlines listed in the Academic Calendar. You must notify your instructor by email, copying Rowen, AND drop the course on AXESS by the deadline to obtain a refund. Otherwise, you will be charged—no exceptions.
