All prospective students are interviewed personally as a first step in the enrollment process.
Interviews with beginning students are designed to assess readiness for piano study and to answer any questions about the
New School’s programs and philosophy. For those with previous study, the interview provides an opportunity to discover where
the student is in each area of piano study. Interviews are scheduled throughout the school year by our Director of Admissions.
For more information on registration or to register for lessons, contact the Admissions Director at 609-921-2900 x106 or Admissions@NSMSPiano.org
Re-Enrollment For Continuing Students
For continuing registration, preference is given to students who are registered for the previous semester. To pre-register
and guarantee a place in the fall, parents must return a completed registration card and a $100 tuition deposit for each
student. This deposit is credited against the first tuition payment.
Registration is for the entire 39-week school year, September through June. If a student must withdraw before the end of the school year, a four-week notice is required and tuition will be assessed through the notice period. No withdrawal is accepted after April 1. All withdrawals must be submitted in writing to the school’s administration.
Under certain conditions, a student may be asked to discontinue music study at the New School for Music Study. These conditions include, but are not limited to:
- non-payment or recurrent lateness in payment of tuition
- excessive absenteeism or tardiness
- non-participation in group classes
- excessive and recurrent non-preparation of assignments or inconsistent practice
- perception that our program may not be suited for the needs of a particular student
