Additional Fees:
There is a yearly, non-refundable $30 registration fee at the time of registration. If you sign up for a second set of lessons in the same academic year* (September - May), the additional registration fee is waived.

For summer registration (June - August): There is a $10 fee only. This fee will be waived if the student has paid the $30 fee for the academic year (September - May).

*The fee resets every September. For example: If you took lessons in Spring 2018 and paid the $30 fee, and you continue taking lessons in the Summer, the $10 fee is waived. If you then register for lessons in Fall of 2018, $30 fee would be charged because it is the beginning of the next academic year.
