New Student Registration

Open registration for new students begins on June 15, 2015. The fall semester begins on September 9, 2015. Students may register at any time in the academic year. Once a student is scheduled with a teacher, lessons or classes will be pro-rated for the remainder of the year and the student will receive a bill for the pro-rated number of lessons.

  • Complete the Registration Form (one form per student; form may be duplicated) or
  • Be sure to list specific class time or widest availability for private lessons.
  • To facilitate placement for private lessons, it is recommended that students complete the Student Profile Form, and submit it with the registration form.
