Voice students must audition for a private lesson spot.  To set up an audition, email the Director of Music, Aaron Alon, at Aaron.Alon@lonestar.edu

  1. With what instructor do you want to study?  If you don’t know, Dr. Alon can help place you in an instructor’s studio.

Dr. Alon will email you with further instructions to register.  Once you register, be sure to pay for the class by the deadline or you may lose your spot.

When will you offer lessons on my instrument?

We’re constantly adding new private lesson opportunities.  To get on a waitlist for an instrument we don’t offer yet, please email the Director of Music, Aaron Alon, at Aaron.Alon@lonestar.edu.  We will choose what instrument to offer next by the number of students on that wait list, so sign up today!

Can lessons apply toward my degree?

MUAP x1xx lessons do not count toward the AA degree.  MUAP x2xx lessons count toward the AA in Music degree (four semesters required), but not the general AA degree.  MUAP lessons do not count toward the core.  Please consult with your transfer institution to see if MUAP lessons can be used as elective credits toward a four-year degree.

Questions?

Please email any questions you have to the Director of Music, Aaron Alon, at Aaron.Alon@lonestar.edu.
