The Music Department has an active Instrumental Studies program, providing students, faculty, staff, and community members with a variety of opportunities to perform instrumental music at Drew:
Students also have the option of taking lessons on any instrument with one of our several private instructors. A fee will be assessed for all students enrolled in private instruction. See our Private Lessons page for more information on registering for private instruction.
Audition and placement requirements vary with each instrumental ensemble. For more information on requirements and procedures, contact the specific instructor of each ensemble.
Ensembles and private lessons are courses, which means that all undergraduate students must register in order to participate. Variable credit options are offered (0, 1, or 2 credits), to provide students with the flexibility to fit ensembles or lessons into their schedules without causing credit overloads. Expectations for attendance and participation apply to all participants, regardless of the number of credits for which they are registered.
Students involved in instrumental activities at Drew have several opportunities to perform in our world-class Concert Hall:
