MSU Piano Pre-College Program Open Enrollment

Monday, January 18, 2016

For the fifth consecutive year, Mississippi State’s music department is offering non-credit piano lessons to students in the Golden Triangle community. A limited number of slots are available for individual lessons given by junior and senior piano majors, as well as staff instructors. The popular program does not apply to university students, faculty and staff. To begin the first full week of February, the 12-week training program will be overseen by professor Rosângela “Rose” Sebba, a Steinway Artist who chairs the department’s piano area. Jan. 25 is the deadline for registration that may be completed at Completed forms should be emailed to Sebba at or faxed to the music department at 662-325-0250. Interviews will take place Feb. 1, Sebba said. “This program allows us to train our students, as well as provide high-quality piano lessons and excellence for lifelong arts learning to our community,” she added, noting that the curriculum follows requirements of the Mississippi Music Teachers Association, a division of the Music Teachers National Association. The $370 tuition must be paid in full at registration. The fee includes $30 per lesson, along with a $10 registration fee for administrative expenses and the concluding semester recital. Participants may choose between either a single hour-long or two half-hour lessons each week in Music Building A, located on Morrill Road across from the T.K. Martin Center for Technology and Disability parking lot. Sebba said campus employees and enrolled MSU students interested in similar training should register for MUA 1031 for non-majors, where the credit-hour lessons are given weekly by adjunct faculty for a semester fee. Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music, MSU’s music department offers a bachelor’s degree in four areas of music education, as well as a bachelor of arts in music.
