The New School for Music Study


Tuition may be paid in one of two payment plans:

  • FOUR payments, due on the following dates:
    First week of school, November 1, January 1, April 1.
  • MONTHLY payments, due for 8 months:
    First week of school and the first of every month through April
    Monthly payment plans are available by marking the appropriate box on your registration form.

The total tuition is divided into four or eight equal payments. Each payment does not cover the tuition for the payment period; rather, it is 1/4 or 1/8 of the total tuition based upon the payment period. There is a 15-day grace period after each scheduled due date. Payments received after the grace period will be automatically assessed a $25.00 late fee.

Tuition must be paid in full for student participation in the Spring Recitals.

Returned Checks

There will be a $25 fee for returned bank checks to cover the fee charged to us by the bank.

Music and Materials Fee

There is a yearly fee of $150 to cover all music and materials for each student. Your child’s teacher will provide all books needed during the entire school year; these books are yours to keep. In addition, this fee is used to cover the cost of paper, music and materials used in lessons and repertoire classes, and replacement costs of on-loan music. This fee is assessed at registration and is your deposit for fall enrollment.
