Private Lesson Program

The Community Music Conservatory at UW Oshkosh is pleased to be launching our private lesson program. We will be offering private study for orchestral strings during the Fall 2017 session. We will be offering private lessons on wind and percussion instruments, voice, and composition in the Spring of 2018.

Fall 2017 Session

The Fall 2017 of six weekly lessons begin the week of October 30, 2017 and ends the week of December 11, 2017. No lessons will be held the week of November 20 due to Thanksgiving recess.

We will accept new students at any point during the Fall session for a prorated rate.


Three different types of instruction are available for students depending on their experience level, needs, and goals. If you have any questions about which instructor may be right for you, please contact us at . We can advise you in this matter.

  • Master Teacher – highly reputable professional musicians with at least one degree in music. A Master Teacher would be appropriate for students of any age who have several years of experience on their instrument, and are looking for advanced instruction.
  • Apprentice Instructor – Upper level undergraduate music majors in the UW Oshkosh Department of Music. They have been recommended by the faculty for their musicianship and professionalism, and are regularly evaluated by their professors regarding their teaching. An Apprentice Instructor is an ideal teacher for a beginner or younger student.
  • UW Oshkosh Department of Music Faculty – Available on a case-by-case basis at the instructor's discretion. Prospective students wishing to work directly with UWO Faculty should inquire with the Community Music Conservatory to determine availability.

All private instructors have met rigorous standards and qualifications, and have passed criminal background checks through the UW Oshkosh Department of Online and Continuing Education.
