Practical Assignment and Lessons

Registration/Withdrawal

Registration/Withdrawal

Registration for practical instruction and examinations (MUIN courses) is not available on Minerva. Students are reminded to submit a Lesson Assignment Card to the Department of Performance by the specified deadlines. Practical Instruction will then be added onto students’ records.

The deadline for withdrawing from practical lessons is the end of the second week of classes in any term.

Assignment of Teachers

Assignment of Teachers

The assignment of students to teachers for private lessons is the responsibility of the Chair of the Department of Performance. Student requests for specific teachers will be taken into consideration where possible.

It is understood that returning students will study with the same teacher unless prior arrangements have been made with the Chair of the Department in consultation with the teachers concerned. However, those students who do not return the Lesson Assignment Card (including Voice Coaching) by the specified deadline cannot be guaranteed the teacher of their choice, and they will be assessed a late fee of $50. Teacher assignments will be made soon after the period of enrolment and confirmed during the first week of classes. Following this assignment, it is the students' responsibility to contact their teachers and arrange lesson times.

Individual lessons missed as a consequence of the instructor's absence will be made up at the mutual convenience of the instructor and student. Lessons missed as the result of the student's absence will be made up only if notice of cancellation has been given 48 hours in advance, or if a doctor's certificate is produced and prior notice of the cancellation is given.

Note: Students who are taking practical lessons in fulfilment of the requirements for any degree are required to study with teachers on the staff of the Schulich School of Music.
