Private Lessons

Music

Music students work one-on-one with faculty members who are also professional musicians. On this page, you can view faculty by expertise.

Columbia faculty represent a diversity of musical styles and experiences. They will be your mentors, teachers, and bandmates. Private lessons are often required as part of the curriculum. They're an opportunity to ask questions, receive one-on-one feedback, and explore new musical directions.
