High School Orchestra

We offer programs for all ages and skill levels that are focused on creating a fun and creative learning environment. Please see our School Policies below: 

RCSME Policies

  • To ensure continuity of lessons and to hold the chosen day/timeslot the FULL monthly tuition (4 lessons) must be paid by each student to the instructor. The only exception being if the school is closing for a holiday/break that will result in a shorter month, and you will be notified by us and the instructor. 

  • Tuition should be paid to your instructor directly, in either cash, check, or Venmo (if individual instructor accepts this form of payment) and is due the first lesson of the new month

  • There will be one excused absence every month (make up lesson given). 24-hour notice must be given to qualify for said makeup lesson, which can be scheduled at the convenience of both instructor and student.

  • If no makeup time can be determined, the teacher can send a 10-minute video with all concepts/exercises that would have been taught during the missed lesson for the student to use for practice. This will only be done once per month to appease any excused absence. 

  • Please note that NO SHOW lessons/consistent call outs/call outs right before lesson time will result in a forfeited paid lesson. While we understand last minute things happen, please understand that recurring call outs and reschedules cannot be honored or rolled over into the next month, due to the full schedules each individual instructor has. 

  • On the 1st of each month students may attempt to reschedule lessons if there are time conflicts (vacations/other commitments) this will be at each instructors’ discretion.

  • In the past all instructors have attempted to be as flexible as they can to hold time slots for students who participate in other activities. This year we currently have a waiting list for students, so please be aware that we may not be able to hold a time slot for longer than a month.

  • Monthly Tuition for (4) half hour lessons is $140. 

  • Monthly Tuition for (4) one-hour lessons is $280.

  • Some months will have a 5th week, if it falls during the student’s lesson day, they can opt to take the 5th lesson which will bring the ½ hour monthly tuition to $175 or the 1-hour lesson to $350. If the student opts out of the 5th week, please let the instructor know what date they will not be in for their lesson, so the instructor can coordinate accordingly.

  • All students should arrive at least 5 minutes early to be prepared and get the most out of each lesson. 

  • NO PARKING in front of the loading dock is permitted per our landlord. We have received permission from Navigant Credit Union, across the street, to use their parking lot after their hours of operation. If there are no spots left in the Handkerchief Factory lot or one of the side streets you may use NCU’s parking lot without fear of being towed. Thank you for your cooperation in this.
