Dear, Charlotte Music School Families and Community,

All of us at CMS hope you are safe and doing well, and enjoying the last bit of the summer season.

First, congratulations to everyone on the amazing virtual recitals! From the parents, and siblings who helped record videos, to the teachers and students who prepared the music, it was a great success! Well done! (If you missed them, visit our Facebook page, and go to Videos to see them all.)

Another round of kudos goes to teachers, students and families on the successful transition to online/remote lessons. It is a true testament to how vital music education continues to be in all of our lives. 

All of us miss seeing you in person so much, however, teacher and student safety is the highest priority at Charlotte Music School. Due to the continual unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers and staff unanimously decided it is in the best interest for everyone that Charlotte Music School continue with online/remote lessons through the Fall Semester (September-December).

We want you to know how important you are to us. To say, “Thank You”, tuition for the Fall Semester will reflect a Customer Appreciation discount. For example, 30 minute lessons will be $28.75 rather than $31.50 per lesson. (See below for reduced monthly tuition rates for 30, 45 & 60 minute lessons). 

All students will receive 16 private music lessons during the Fall Semester.

Customer Appreciation Monthly Tuition – Fall Semester (September 1 – December 19, 2020)
30 minute lessons: $28.75 * 16 lessons = $460.00 divided over 4 months = $115 per month
45 minute lessons: $43.12 * 16 lessons = $689.92 divided over 4 months = $172.48 per month
60 minute lessons: $57.50 * 16 lessons = $920.00 divided over 4 months = $230 per month
All Policies remain in effect including 30 day withdrawal notice.

Additionally, we are excited to announce the return of Music Theory Classes. They will be taught remotely using Zoom by our very own Ms. Valeriya. Details below! Class sizes will be limited so reserve your spot very soon.
