Elective and Secondary String Lessons

The String Department offers elective and secondary instrument lessons to Music majors and Non-Music majors interested in studying Violin, Viola, Cello, or Double Bass. Lessons are taught once a week by the appointed AI's of each instrument, and are open to students of all levels with a desire to start or develop previous abilities. Instruments can be rented and loaned through the Instrument Rental Office on the fourth floor of the Music Annex for students unable to bring an instrument to school. 

Enrollment in elective and secondary lessons can be started by searching the Registar's IU Course Catalog for MUS-S and MUS-Z for Music and Non-Music majors, respectively. Lessons begin at the start of each semester; questions and concerns can be directed to the String Department AI at:
