Summer Registration will open April 27

As we have transferred to online learning, our school has embraced this united effort that allows us to continue to connect with all of our students virtually for private lessons and group classes. While we look forward to being together again on campus, we continue to provide high quality arts education to the best of our abilities online. We will adjust our program online the following ways:


Private Lesson Packages will be discounted in 8, 12, & 24 lesson increments for study taking place mid May through August. These discounts will appear after you add the lessons to your cart and proceed to checkout:

  • Students who sign up for 8 lessons, will receive 1.5 lessons free 
  • Students who sign up for 12 lessons, will receive 2.0 lessons free, plus music theory intensive at 50% off
  • Students who sign up for 24 lessons, will receive 3.5 lessons free, plus music theory intensive for free.
  • Students can still register for less than 8 lessons at the regular individual lesson price.

 All group classes have been discounted 10%, this discount is already built into the tuition pricing.


Three Month Payment Plans can be set up for the months of May - July, with no additional set-up fee.


Students currently receiving need-based financial aid or those who have submitted financial aid applications and meet the minimum qualification requirements, may be given up to 25% off their private lesson registration.
