New Students can start lessons during the semester if there is avaliability. Students with prior music instruction are encouraged to audition. Beginners are provided a complimentary evaluation and personal interview. If you have questions about our school or wish to schedule an audition time, please contact Matthew Loudermilk.


We are using Conservatoire Style Scheduling, like all world class music institutions. Based on your interview or audition you will be placed with a teacher who will be able to meet your musical needs best. Each teacher makes their own schedule trying to accommodate his or her students' families. You will work with the same teacher from semester to semester.  


Registration is by semester. Our semesters are based on the school calendar year. The Fall semester is 16 weeks long, and the Spring semester is 20 weeks long.

Students are expected to take lessons every week during the semesters. New students can start lessons in the middle of the semester if scheduling permits. Students who would like to receive extra lessons to prepare for recitals or other events may register for additional lessons.


Payment must be received before your first lesson of the semester. Early payment will guarantee your spot in your teacher's studio.
There is a $15 fee for any late payment or returned check.

If for some reason you discontinue lessons in the middle of the semester you will be given a refund for the remaining lessons.


There are no refunds for missed lessons. If you cannot make it to your lesson, please let your teacher know as soon as possible so he or she can arrange a make-up lesson. At least 24 hours advance notice is required in order to receive a make-up lesson. There is a limit of two (2) make-up lessons each semester. A make-up lesson should be taken within a week of the missed lesson. All of our teachers are performing artists and will occasionally have a schedule conflict. In this case, we will provide a substitute teacher or a make-up lesson.
