Student Visa for Private Lessons

As an American citizen, I know 90 days in Switzerland is allowed on a tourist visa, however, if one would want to stay longer to take private music lessons with a professor, would you need a student visa, or is there another special visa appropriate for this? Also, if you need a student visa, will the Swiss gov't allow you to apply for one with out a School's acceptance letter?

No. Student permits are only for studies at recognised institutions.

Thanks SwissBob for you answer!

So, I'm guessing then, since a private professor isn't a recognized institution, the private lessons wouldn't be able to happen for longer than 90 days in a 180 day period, correct?
