*$690 is the 70% subsidized rate, for students studying privately at the Conservatory.  $1150 is the rate for students taking privte lessons from outside of the Conservatory.  Each program is customized for each individual student. This fee DOES NOT include private lessons or theory courses, which are a mandatory part of the program, but are not subsidized.  Although theory fees are not covered, we will offer theory lab time to our Academy students.

Because this is an ensemble-based program, we need commitment from students long before the first day of classes. So, fees are due by August 16, 2019. Students must commit to both semesters.
