Private vocal or instrumental lessons are offered for both degree-seeking music majors and the "hobby" student.  Students learn the finer points of vocal or instrumental performance during lessons with one of LLCC's highly qualified instructors. 

The student must provide any instrument other than a piano.  Students have a weekly half-hour or hour lesson and enjoy individual attention in a private studio.  Every lesson is a positive learning experience that develops students' technical and musical abilities through repertoire assignments appropriate to each student's skill level.  Degree-seeking students work on college-level repertoire for recital performances.  Non-music majors perform in an informal recital at the conclusion of each semester.  

To register for private applied music, prior arrangements must be made with the Fine Arts and Education Office by calling Glenda Thomas at (217) 786-2318.  In addition to tuition, an additional lab fee is required.

Professor Barbara Lanham, M.S. serves as coordinator of Applied Music at LLCC.
