  1. Create a new account first. This saves steps later!
  2. Click on "Apply for Lessons" and fill out the online inquiry form.
  3. After you have submitted the form, our office will contact you. Please do not register for lessons until after you have been assigned an instructor.
  4. For initial trial lessons, we will create the invoice based on instrument, instructor, and length of lesson. We must be sent this information before the trial lesson is scheduled to occur. Trial lessons are the cost of the lesson plus a $5 trial lesson fee.
