Registration Fees

A registration fee of $40 applies to new students. Returning piano students require an annual re-registration fee of $40 per student (maximum $100 per family), due by May 15th, to maintain enrollment for the Fall Term. Theory classes have a fee of $15 per course.

Fall (Term 1): September to December
Winter (Term 2): January to March
Spring (Term 3): April to June

The actual number of lessons given by the teacher will determine the fee for that term.
