This summer, we will offer both online classes via Zoom and limited in-person activities. Be sure to review the location for each class to ensure that you are registering for the correct option.
From July 19 –August 15, continuing students may use a special code to receive a 3% tuition discount on private lessons in piano, strings and voice. This special code will be emailed directly to all current students. No refunds will be issued due to failure to use discount code for this promotion.
For this academic year only, the school is providing a promotional discount to woodwinds, brass, and percussion students with approximately 15% off private lessons.
A Registration Fee of $25 will be charged for all students who register on or after September 1. The registration fee is waived from July 19 –August 31.
Private lessons for music students is the chance to receive intensive training and focus on specific skill development. To request private lessons, students must submit an inquiry form. Note: Inquiry forms should only be submitted if you’re interested in private lessons or wish to audition for an ensemble. Approximately two weeks after submitting the form, you’ll be notified by the appropriate Colburn Community School of Performing Arts representative regarding an interview and/or audition.
When meeting with department members, you may be asked to play a music piece as well as answer questions. Our faculty wishes to gauge your level of interest and learning style, as well as assess which days and times lessons can be scheduled. Due to faculty and studio availability along with high demand for private lessons, there’s no guarantee all requests will be granted. If a faculty member requests a lesson with the student to determine placement, a new student will be charged for one lesson through the Community School office.
Costs for private lessons, based on 32 weekly lessons in the academic year from August to May:
For new students beginning private study after August, tuition may be pro-rated according to the number of weeks left in the academic year. Tuition for private lessons is updated each academic year, and is listed in the Schedule of Classes. Need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships are available at the beginning of the academic year. Learn more about the requirements to qualify for financial assistance.
Collaboration is an essential element to any music educational program, so we’ve created numerous opportunities for students to showcase their talents and advancing skills.
Auditions for the 2021-22 academic year are now being held for the ensembles programs. Vocal ensembles will not be offered during fall 2021. Visit specific ensemble and orchestra pages for more details.
