About the Preparatory Division

Welcome to the University of Idaho’s Music Preparatory Division, directed by Dr. Jovanni-Rey de Pedro and Dr. Miranda Wilson.

The “Prep” offers high quality music instruction in a university lab school setting. Our faculty includes Lionel Hampton School of Music professors, experienced professionals, and student teachers working under the guidance of mentor professors.

We provide private lessons to students of all ages and levels in piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, double bass, and guitar, as well as several woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments.

Our ensembles include the Greater Palouse Youth Orchestra, the Cantabile Strings Ensemble, and Suzuki group classes for younger strings students. We also offer one-on-one classes in Alexander Technique.
