How to Register

COMMUNITY MUSIC SCHOOL 

Individual Lessons (non-Suzuki)

Pre-registration:  Students wanting to get a head start on registration may read more about our programs and instructors by clicking here.  (Please note this is not for the St. Louis Public School Partnership Program.  Applications for the SLPS program are through participating schools.)

Recommended Process: 

Our walk-in registration sessions allow staff members to consider a student's background, personality, personal motivation and goals, as well as specific needs or requirements, to place the student with the most appropriate instructor.  While student attendance at registration is optional, students are encouraged to attend with a parent and see the facilities. (Auditions are not required.) Students may register after the walk-in registration dates; however, remaining lesson times may not be as convenient for your family's schedule.
