To ensure placement with the most suitable instructor we will request information about the student's skill level and previous musical experience, stylistic preferences, objectives for studying, teaching styles best suited for the student, personal characteristics and scheduling preferences. If you already know which instructor you would like to study with, you may indicate this instructor on your registration form.

Payment Terms
Tuition payment and other fees under the selected payment plan are due prior to the student's first lesson. A non-refundable registration fee of $5 is due for each student along with tuition at the time of enrollment. Families with more than one student enrolled at the same time will receive a 5% discount on tuition for each student enrolled.
