Registering for Applied Music Lessons

Music & Entertainment Industry Studies Department


​General Information Regarding Applied Lesson Registration

  • Prior to registering for applied music lessons, students must be given permission from the Music & Entertainment Industry Studies Department. Once permission is approved, students will be notified via their CU Denver email to register through UCD Access.
  • Students will not be given permission to register for applied music lessons until enrollment in PMUS 1500 General Recital has been verified.
  • The MEIS Office will begin to send emails regarding approved applied lesson  permissions in June for the Fall semester and January for the Spring semester.
  • To receive permission for lessons, students must complete the "Applied Lesson Request Form" and submit it to the MEIS Office in Arts 288 or via email to meis.dept@ucdenver. Students will not be asked to obtain permission from faculty prior to submitting the form.
  • Once a student receives permission, they must log on directly to UCD Access to register for their assigned course and section.
  • Students can request up to two preferred lesson times. For example, Request #1: Mondays before 1:00pm, Request #2: Tuesdays or Thursdays from 11:30-4:00. Students may also request an applied lesson instructor. The MEIS will work to accommodate all requests with available faculty, but faculty requests cannot be guaranteed. 

 

Information for Performance, Singer/Songwriter, and Audition Track Students (Music Business or Recording Arts)

  • Students must be registered for PMUS 1500 General Recital and an ensemble as co-requisites, as well as at least 7 credit hours in addition to their applied music lesson. Co-requisites will be strictly enforced and students will be administratively dropped from their applied lesson if not properly registered.

  • Non-Audition Track Students must complete Music Theory II, Ear Training & Sight Singing II and Piano Class II prior to taking Applied Lessons.
  • Students must be registered for PMUS 1500 General Recital as a co-requisite, as well as at least 7 credit hours in addition to their applied music lesson. Co-requisites will be strictly enforced and students will be administratively dropped from their applied lesson if not properly registered.
  • Students enrolling in their first semester of non-audition track (non-juried) applied lessons must declare a primary instrument.
