Scheduled as students are registered; some instructors have limited availability.  Students will have a recital opportunity each semester and may also participate in local area festivals (when available).
Lessons are limited according to age due to the physical development required for the instrument and/or the intensity of the course material.
Lessons are scheduled individually with the teacher. Once registered, the teacher will contact the student regarding a lesson time. Once a mutually agreed time is selected, no changes may be made. Lessons missed by the student will not be refunded or rescheduled.  Students over 18 years of age may take college-level applied music lessons for credit, either for music majors or for non-majors (avocational), but need to complete the KC application process to enroll.
