First Notes
Registration and Tuition

Tuition

NOTE: A returning family is a family who has taken classes through First Notes or Household Harmony only. All others are considered new families.

Tuition includes a songbook and a CD with a unique access code to allow families to use the Family Music Zone and to download or stream the session's music. A parent guide is available for new families. 

Tuition is non-refundable after the first class of the session and will not be prorated for late registration or missed classes.  2 missed classes can be rescheduled by using the "Makeup Scheduler" tab. 

Please choose your classes carefully, as it is becoming increasingly more difficult to honor class change requests after the start of classes.
