PERMISSION OF PROFESSOR REQUIRED
Students receive weekly private viol lessons, the time arranged with the professor. When proficient, they play in a viol ensemble. The FAS Department lends students a viol and bow from its collection. Qualified students may play with The Teares of the Muses, an ensemble affiliated with the NYU Music Department. The group performs on- and off-campus. Requirements to enroll in the course are previous vocal or instrumental training on any instrument - not limited to strings - and good musicianship skills.
*Please note that the class will not actually take place within a structured course time, as listed here. You will set up appointments for lessons with the professor.
