*Tutorials are individual meetings with an instructor.  In the case of Accompanying, piano students work on accompaniment and rehearsal skills with Dr Di Bella. In the case of 400-level tutorials, the instructor is chosen by the student based on the instructor's expertise, and the instructor, in turn, must agree to supervise the student.  There are no scheduled lecture classes. Students are expected to work on their own. All tutorials require a high level of self-discipline for successful completion.


It is the student’s responsibility to check the Music course calendar for course prerequisites.
