Registration, Tuition, and Fees
The annual registration fee is non-refundable. The student (or parent/guardian) is financially responsible for all classes and lessons. Students who enroll for private lessons and classes designated as “year-long” are registered for the entire academic year and will be billed automatically.
Tuition for year-long lessons and classes is divided into two equal payments. Tuition payment is due by August 31 for first semester and January 31 for second semester.
For 15, and 16 week sessions, tuition is due in full before the first class. For any registration after these dates, payment is due in full at time of registration.
Payment plans are considered by the Registrar when submitted in writing before the start of lessons and classes.
The lessons and classes for students with outstanding balances will be suspended until the account is paid in full.
The Conservatory reserves the right to cancel group classes due to insufficient enrollment. Tuition will be fully refunded.
To ensure the student’s best placement with our faculty, first-time students enrolling in the private instruction program are required to interview in person with the Conservatory Executive Director. There are no audition requirements for admission.
Private lessons are scheduled in the order in which registration is received. Lessons are scheduled on the basis of student and teacher availability and the Executive Director’s recommendation. The Conservatory makes every effort to accommodate each student’s schedule in assigning lesson time.
A limited number of classes and teacher studios may have space available after the semester begins. Private lessons and class tuition will be pro-rated. Registration for new students will be accepted throughout the semester on a space-available basis only
Change of Instructor
Concordia Conservatory’s method of assigning a private instructor is designed to make the best possible match before studies begin. However, if a change is desired, a student (or parent/guardian) must contact the Executive Director.
Withdrawal and Refunds
Tuition is fully refunded if a student withdraws before the first lesson.
The student (or parent/guardian) is financially responsible for all classes and lessons as stated in “Registration, Tuition, and Fees”. Students who enroll for private lessons and classes are designated as “year-long” are registered for the entire period of the lessons or classes and are responsible for the financial commitment. Students who enroll for classes designated 4, 8, 15, or 16 classes are registered for the entire time period of the classes and are responsible for the financial commitment.
In the case of prolonged illness (accompanied with a doctor’s letter) or move of residency, refunds are pro-rated as stated below.
All withdrawal requests must be made in writing to the Executive Director for review by the Advisory Board. Please understand that verbal requests from students, parents, or faculty cannot be accepted.

Return Check Fee

The Conservatory office must be notified of all cancellations.
For student absences, two individual lessons per semester can be rescheduled if the absence is due to student illness, religious observance, or extraordinary circumstances. There are no exceptions. The Conservatory must be notified 24 hours in advance of cancellation due to a religious observance or extraordinary circumstance, or by 8am the day of a lesson when due to illness. Otherwise, the teacher is not required to make up the missed lesson.
For teacher absences, students receive personal notification from the teacher and the lesson will be rescheduled. For unscheduled Conservatory closings (see below), such as a snow emergency, lessons and classes will be rescheduled at the end of the semester.
