Community Music Program

The University of Toledo Community Music Program offers group and private music lessons to members of the community. You do not need to be a UToledo student to participate. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not holding GROUP lessons at this time. We hope to hold GROUP LESSONS in the future when the pandemic is passed. Any decision will be announced here on the website.

Private lessons will be conducted virtually if a student teacher is available in the desired instrument or in voice. Please complete the inquiry form below and someone from the Music Department will get back with you.

All 6-week sessions are to be paid in full before the classes begin. Refunds will be issued in full or in part according to the following conditions. Otherwise, there will be no refund.

If YOU need to cancel your registration:

  • You have one week prior to the first lesson to cancel, so that your seat can be given to another student.
  • If you cancel one week prior to the first lesson, you will be given a full refund of any fees paid.
  • Cancelations after one week before the first lesson will not be refunded.
  • If you are sick and cannot attend a lesson, please notify your teacher by email. But there will not be a refund. If you are taking private lessons, simply reschedule the lesson with your teacher.

If WE cancel a lesson due to inclement weather or for any other reason:

  • Lessons or rehearsals/performances will be cancelled only if the University of Toledo is closed for any reason or cancels classes during the time the event should have taken place. Please visit the UToledo home page or tune to local media for closing information.
  • If we cancel a music lesson and it cannot be rescheduled, a refund of the value of 1 lesson will be issued for that lesson. No refunds will be issued for rehearsals. Any ensemble performances we cancel will be rescheduled.
  • If the teacher is unable to be at the lesson, we will provide a substitute teacher. If this cannot be done, a refund for the lesson will be issued for that class, if the lesson cannot be rescheduled.
  • If an ensemble director is unable to be present, the rehearsal will be cancelled for that date. No refunds.
