• The courses offered through the IUP Community Music School give participants guided lessons through learning how to properly read and play music on piano, guitar, and bagpipes—all while having fun! Students must have access to the class-specified instrument daily.

    COVID-19 Pandemic Update: Fall 2020

    All IUP Community Music School classes will not be meeting this fall due to health concerns and limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are hopeful that they can be offered in the spring 2021 semester, but it obviously depends on the situation with the pandemic.

    However, registration for both online and in-person private lessons is OPEN and will be ongoing and rolling throughout the semester. For more information on lessons, please see the Private Lessons page.

    For additional information from the IUP Community Music School, please see the IUPCMS home page, and for more information from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, please see the comprehensive Coronavirus Information page.

    All classes take place in Cogswell Hall, IUP main campus. Click here for map and directions.

    Note: If you cannot attend the listed class time for the piano and guitar courses, email of your interest. There is always the possibility of re-scheduling the class to a day/time where all interested students can attend. If the minimum number of students is not met, those interested will be offered private instruction.
