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.) 


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.
