Fall, Winter & Spring (10 weeks)
Summer (6 - 8 weeks - varies)
Tuition pricing is evaluated annually in the Summer and a tuition increase of no more than 2% may be necessary each Fall semester to keep up with inflation and current cost of doing business in Austin.
Discount for Consecutive Enrollment (returning families)
Music Together's impact on children and families is ideal when all the classes offered in the semester are attended.
Regular attendance gives your child the most robust support to grow as a musical person and research continues to support that repitition is a key factor.
Building relationships with music and with people takes time so we stress using all the time you enrolled for!
The next best thing to joining at the beginning of the session is:
-joining as soon as you can
-attending class as much as possible once you are enrolled - taking full advantage of make-ups provided (doubling classes each week until you are caught up)
-continuing with us through early childhood to ensure that musical neural pathways are well forged
Early childhood is the time when the brain is most primed for music learning - the sooner the better for those developing brains!
Here's a handy-dandy chart for calculating what the pro-rate would be if you are joining us at any point in the session:
Missed week 1 - planning to start at the 2nd class. We offer 1 make-up class so, there's no pro-rate applicable.
Missed week 1 and 2 - planning to start at 3rd class. We offer 2 make-up classes, no pro-rate.
If you miss the first 3 weeks, you get 2 make-ups and $15 off.
If you miss the first 4 weeks, you get 2 make-ups and $30 off, and so on...
Pro-rate calculation: There are fixed fees associated with putting on our classes that cannot be pro-rates out, for this reason - only a portion of the average class cost is eligible to be pro-rated out.
So if you are joining a class - look at how many classes you have missed and what date you are joining to know what applies.
The first two missed are never pro-rated, we need you to 'catch up' by using your make-ups and doubling up for a few weeks to get the proper number of repititions with songs in class. We assume everyone is going to miss a class or 2, so the first 2 missed classes are offered as a make-up. It's not until you miss 3 total that a pro-rate can even be considered.
If you have a special circumstance and need to request a pro-rate for multiple missed classes that are not at the start of the semester - please contact us directly to discuss your circumstance.
The last 2 weeks of the session will continue to be closed to new students.
Instead please RSVP for a free demo class coming up in the next FREE DEMO WEEK preceding the next semester.
**Pro-rates are taken off automatically during registration.
**Pro-rates DO NOT apply to sibling rates and are per family only. Sibling rates are already priced at a generous discount and pro-rates are offered - per family only - not per student.
**NO pro-rates are available for our Summer 6 week session. Pro-rate applies to Summer 8 week semester classes. Late joins will be accepted, but missed classes are encouraged to be made up using our flexible make-up policy. Ideally - you will strive to attend all classes to maximize classroom hours with the song collection, support your child's acclimation to the routine of class and enjoy lots of hands on practice with our instruments/props and activities.
