The fee is $750, for which the student is fully committed following the end of the add/drop period. Students receiving need-based scholarship assistance from Amherst College will be given additional scholarship grants in the full amount of these fees. MUSL 351H-384H may be repeated, may be elected only with the consent of the Department Coordinator, and will consist of 12 weekly lessons of 50 minutes. A minimum of 5 hours of weekly individual practice is expected. Instrumental or vocal proficiency at the intermediate level is determined by the Music Department.

Non-majors or majors not using performance courses to fulfill major requirements may combine performance half-courses with other half courses to fulfill degree requirements. Students should consult with the Department Coordinator to arrange for teachers and auditions. Instruction in performance is also available through the Five Colleges with all of the above conditions pertaining. A student wishing to study under this arrangement must enroll through Five College Interchange.
