School Music Program Discount
If your child participates in their school music program in any way, they are eligible for a $50 credit toward Youth Symphony tuition. This can include participating in band, choir, guitar, piano, etc. In order to receive the discount, the student must write a short note to the Youth Symphony stating what program they are involved in and have it signed by their music instructor.
The $50 discount will not be deducted from tuition without the signature of their school music instructor (private lessons do not apply).
