Tuition Information:


Tuition is an important part of the long-term financial stability of Music con Brio. We ask that every family contribute what they can in order to continue providing the best possible program, instruments, and equipment for our students. Tuition is based on annual household income. If you need a different payment plan than paying your tuition by the second week of class, you must
speak with the director within or before the first week of class. If no tuition payment is received nor communication made, we reserve the right to give your child’s spot to another student.


What does tuition cover?


Tuition covers group lessons and partner lessons for 15 weeks each semester. At the instructor’s discretion, students may opt for a solo lesson at an additional cost. This option is recommended for older students and is not available to first year students. The additional cost for solo lessons is $200/semester. Payment options may include participating in fundraisers or applying for a special sponsorship (if available). Supplemental group classes in fiddle and percussion are available at an additional fee of $125/semester.


When is tuition due?


Tuition is always due on Monday during the second week of a semester. Fall semester tuition is due by Monday, September 19th. Spring semester tuition is due by Monday, February 13th . Cash (in a labeled envelope) or checks are acceptable. Please make checks to Music con Brio, Inc.  Please hand them to us in person, leave them in the Music con Brio mailbox in the Emerson office, or mail them to: Music con Brio, Inc. PO Box 259452, Madison, WI 53725. This year we also have a credit card option available through our website - there is an additional $5 fee per transaction to pay with a credit card. We recognize that some families may need an individualized payment plan. We also acknowledge that there are other factors that may limit your ability to pay: larger families, unemployment, and multiple children in the program. Please communicate with us (via e-mail, phone or in person) about what will work in your family budget. Remember, no one will be turned away because of financial need!
