Private music lessons are enrollable classes in Axess, and all require that the student audition and secure a place in an instructor's studio prior to enrollment. If you are new to Stanford, please audition with us! (Note to frosh: the Arts Portfolio process is unrelated to auditions.) Any current Stanford student is eligible to audition. Many group lessons have no audition requirement.
All matriculated Stanford students are required to register for lessons.
A Zero-Unit Enrollment option has been created for graduate students and for students unable to enroll for units in lessons or ensembles. Review our Zero-Unit Enrollment Policy to learn how to enroll.
