Tuition & Fees

We understand that our students come to music and dance at different stages of life. Everyone’s path is a little different and that makes the Settlement experience so special. The first step is connecting with us one-on-one so we can find just the right class, ensemble, or program for you or your child. Once you’ve made your selection, your tuition and fees are payable in cash, by check, VISA, MasterCard or debit card.

 


Registration

Because we make great efforts to find a good match between faculty and both student and parent, we ask that registration appointments be made in person for students under the age of 18.  A non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of registration ($45.00/individual; $70/family of two or more).
