Registration & Payment


To register for private lessons or group classes, or request more information, please complete the pre-registration form below. You will be contacted by a CMS staff member who will assist you in choosing a course of study, finalizing a teacher and lesson time and provide a link to access your account for online payments.

Pre-Registration Form

Trial periods and pro-rated tuition: Register at any time for a four-week trial period or a full semester. Students starting after the beginning of the semester should sign up for a trial period or contact the Community Music School for a pro-rated semester long rate. Pro-rated plans are not available for group classes. Students must pay the full cost of the class regardless of the start date. Payment for a trial period and group classes is due in full before the first lesson with no exceptions. Contact the Community and Summer Programs office if you are not able to pay in full for 16 week semester plans.  Sibling discounts are available for some full-semester registration options. Inquire with C&SP staff for available discounts or to request a scholarship application.

Payments may be made online, by check or over the phone by credit card. Electronic payments are accepted at the Stevens Center. Check payments must be received by the Community and Summer Programs office in time to clear before the day of the lesson.

Please note: Families paying in installments must maintain a minimum $100 positive balance beyond the next scheduled lesson.
