WELCOME to Music at Stanford!!!

This is the Stanford Department of Music's website for scheduling auditions for private lessons and ensembles.  Please look for the appropriate ensemble or lesson group below and follow the instructions to sign up for an appointment time.



*NON MAJOR LESSON FEES HAVE GONE UP THIS YEAR* All lessons incur a fee above tuition.  This fee is $325/quarter for majors and $650/quarter for non majors, which includes 10 weeks of individual lesson study and unlimited use of the practice room facilities.  If you are not enrolled in lessons and would still like a practice room, you may request access on the Music website at for $50.  These fees are charged to your student bill and paid like tuition.  Because of billing processes, charges may not appear until the end of the quarter or early weeks of the following quarter.


If you are in need of financial assistance to help cover the cost of lessons, know that the Friends of Music at Stanford offer full and partial lesson scholarship funding each quarter.  Scholarship application webforms are always available on the Department of Music homepage ( on the first day of the quarter and are due at the end of the third week of the quarter, also known as the Final Study List deadline.


Remember to register for the equivalent class and section on Axess after you've successfully earned a spot in a lesson studio or ensemble.  Although signing up here guarantees you an audition, it doesn't enroll you into the course.  Upon admission into the course following your audition, please register for the correct section in Axess. 

Please direct any questions or concerns to individual instructors or to Elise Fujimoto at 650-725-1932.
