Tuition for the 2021-2022 season is $765 and is nonrefundable. Tuition for the upcoming season is set by the Board of Directors at their March meeting. Scholarships for membership and private music lessons are available and awarded on the basis of need. A 10% discount is given to families with two children; a third child receives free tuition. Upon registering as a member for the 2021-2022 season, you will be directed to a payment options page.

Payment is due upon registration. Tuition assistance requests must be made by the July 1st and August 1st deadlines to be considered with your application.

No student should be excluded for financial reasons — please complete the tuition assistance request form, or request installment payments when prompted on the enrollment form.

Please make your installment payments requests early. Music will not be available to students who have not paid tuition.
