2020-2021 school year: August 22nd, 2020 ~ August 20th, 2021
Lessons are scheduled on a year-round basis. Tuition is based on 47 lessons per year.
The monthly tuition is a flat fee regardless of the number of lessons per month. You don’t pay less in months you have 3 lessons nor more in months with 4 or 5 lessons. See MSC policy for details.
The MSC program is designed for students and families who are looking for a customized program tailored to their individual studying pace and interests. 30-minute Lab time is a standard option that is included with all the private lesson tuition. Students have the option to participate in events throughout the year including recitals, festivals, auditions, master classes, and competitions, with the opportunity to earn certificates, ribbons, medals and trophies.
For more serious students, we offer preparation for the Music Teachers’ Association in California (MTAC) Certificate of Merit (CM) exam (for piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, harp and oboe and other woodwind instruments), MSC Guitar evaluation, and the National Piano Guild audition.
