Sharon Music Academy Academic year consists of Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The fall and spring semester each consists of 20 weeks of private instruction. For students enrolling after the start of the semester, the number of lessons will be prorated. For the summer semester, students can choose the number of lessons and the dates of the lessons. Group programs usually run in 8, 12, or 18 lesson sessions, which can cross semester boundaries.
Tuition for the Fall or Spring Semester (the semester is based on 20 lessons ) may be paid in full or in 4 monthly installments (Payment Plan). Academy has an open enrollment – you can start lessons at any time. If the lessons start after the beginning of the semester, the number of lessons and installments will be prorated accordingly. Tuition fees below are listed for the whole Spring or Fall semester.
Tuition fee for the Summer semester depends on the number of reserved lessons in the July-August period ( see Summer Private Lessons Registration form) and must be paid in full before the first lesson of the Summer semester.
Unless noted, all group classes are 45 min long. Tuition for a group course or a program must be paid in full prior to the start of the course or the program.
Suzuki Violin program requires a student to have a violin. Parents can rent a violin from many local rental shops. SMA has a limited number of violins to rent as well.
