Music: Private Lessons

All full-time Calvin College students may enroll in private lessons. Registration for lessons is done through the music department; interested students should go to the department website to fill out an online form to express an interest in taking lessons. Part-time students and dual-enrollment students must first receive permission from the department chair before enrolling in private lessons.

An additional fee will be charged for all private music lessons, based on the type and length of the lesson; see music department website for current rates. Refunds will be issued to students who drop lessons, according to Calvin's reimbursement guidelines for tuition refunds. No refund of lesson fees will be issued after 38 calendar days. See the Financial Information  pages in this catalog and the Music Department Handbook for details.

Students enrolling in private lessons for the first time at Calvin College may be required to take a placement audition. For a complete description of private music lesson policies and expectations, please see the Music Department Handbook.

Music: Ensembles

Membership in ensembles is open to Calvin students who meet the requirements of musicianship. All students who want to participate in any of the music ensembles at Calvin may audition by arrangement with the conductor prior to each semester.

All ensembles carry academic credit. Ensembles may not be audited. If a student is already registered for a full credit load, they may register for the ensemble for 0 credit to avoid the overload fee. See the Music Department Handbook for more details.

Physical Education and Recreation: Personal Fitness

A course in this area is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and activity requirements to maintain active lives. This course is to be used as a gateway course before students complete their two additional requirements, one from leisure and lifetime activities and one from sport, dance and society core categories. (Students take one course from the personal fitness series then one course each from the leisure and lifetime series and from the sport, dance and society series.) The emphasis in each course is on fitness development and maintenance. Students are expected to train 3 times per week—2 times in class and 1 time outside of class. All courses involve the participation in conditioning activities, lectures, discussions, papers, and tests. Conceptual topics related to wellness included in all personal fitness courses are these: (1) principles for the development of an active lifestyle, (2) issues in nutrition, and (3) body image.
