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:
- $375 per quarter for Music majors
- $750 per quarter for non-majors
Fees for group lessons:
- $225 per quarter for majors
- $250 per quarter for non-majors
To qualify for the lower lesson fees available for Music majors, you must not only be a declared Music major, minor or performance certificate student, but also be currently enrolled in, or have completed the first sequence of the core courses, or you must obtain written permission from the Undergraduate Student Services Officer and/or your academic advisor.

Lesson fees are tied to enrollment. If you drop the class by the final study list deadline, the fee goes away. Fees are not prorated. Note that no refunds are given for lessons dropped after the final study list deadline for the quarter posted in the Academic Calendar. Questions about fees should be directed to Rowen Leigh in the Department of Music.
