Based on a semester that typically runs 14 to 15 class weeks, the number of required lessons per semester is 9. This means that the 9 lessons is the minimum number of lessons a student can attend and still qualify for a grade of an A (along with the instructors own grading criteria).
The grading system for applied music lessons is:
9 and more lessons May qualify for an A; contingent upon instructors other grading criteria.
8 lessons May qualify for a B but cannot qualify for an A. B is the highest grade possible when combined with other grading criteria.
7 lessons May qualify for a C but cannot qualify for an A or B. C is the highest possible grade when combined with other grading criteria.
6 lessons Can qualify for an I (Incomplete) if the instructor is willing to make up lessons. This is at the instructors discretion. Otherwise, the student will receive an F.
