Academy Registration

The Musical Beginnings Academy provides classes for your young child over a longer period of time which which enhances the learning process.  

 

How do I save money by registering for the Academy instead of registering for each session separately?

If you register for the fall (12 weeks), winter (10 weeks) and spring (10 weeks) sessions separately, your total tuition would be:

$288 (fall) + $255 (winter) + $255 (spring) = $798

When you register for the Academy, you are given a discount of $75 so your total tuition is:

$798 - $75 = $723

If you pay in full with a check before September 30, 2017, you receive an additional $20 in savings, so your total tuition is:

$723 - $20 = $703

That's nearly $100 in savings if you register and pay for the full year with a check now.


What if I want to use my credit card to pay in full?

Because of PayPal and credit card processing fees, we cannot provide the additional $20 discount if you pay in full with a credit card. You still receive the $75 discount for registering for the full year this fall and the convenience of registering and paying once for the year.


What if I don't want to pay in full right now? 

We are offering a payment plan, which includes the $75 discount, but again, because of the additional work required to process the payments, both credit card and checks, the additional $20 discount does not apply. The payment plan will work like this:

  1. A $199 non-refundable deposit must be paid by September 1, 2017.
  2. Four additional payments of $131 will be collected by October 1, 2017, December 1, 2017, February 1, 2018 and April 1, 2018.
