Students are invited to register for the Gig List

September 9, 2013

The Yale School of Music receives requests each week from Yale and New Haven area community members looking to hire YSM student musicians for gigs and lessons. Requests for both the gig list and community lessons are managed through the Hire a Musician page on the YSM website.

All YSM students are invited to register for the Gig List.


If you previously registered during the summer or last year, you do not need to re-register. Once you register, we forward requests to you as they come in, for the instruments and areas you indicate. You have 48 hours to reply to a request if you are interested, in order to get the contact details. You are then responsible for contacting the client to make arrangements for the gig or lessons.

Please note that payments related to gigs and community lessons are not managed through YSM, and students should make all arrangements directly with the client. Students work as independent musicians and not as employees of YSM. International students must submit the Curricular Practical Training Request Form to the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) before each gig or new lessons student.
