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.
To begin the interview and registration process, contact Angela Triandafillou , Admissions Director, at 609-921-2900 ext. 106.
Re-Enrollment For Continuing Students
For continuing registration, preference is given to students who are registered for the previous semester. New students may enroll at the New School after completing a placement interview and paying a one-time $50 registration fee. All remaining tuition from the previous term must be paid in full before registration for the next term can be accepted
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
The New School for Music Study maintains a totally non–discriminatory admissions policy and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization as a division of The Frances Clark Center for Keyboard Pedagogy.
