CMS offers high quality private instruction in most instruments in a variety of styles for all students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.  Private lessons are one-on-one, usually for 30 minutes with the same teacher, and are scheduled at the same time and on the same day of each week. Longer lessons are available for more advanced students.  
 
We invite new students to schedule an interview lesson by contacting the office at 610-435-7725 to discuss your, or your child's, needs and schedule.
 
30-minute interview lesson costs $33, and payment must be made at the time of scheduling, even if you intend to apply for financial aid.  You may choose to interview with multiple teachers to find one that is right for you.

Financial Aid: Financial Aid is available to students under 18 who qualify, based upon family income. Financial aid is computed on a sliding scale. CMS requires all families with students on financial aid to reapply each year and provide updated documentation of family income. All new documentation is due on or before August 1, 2017 for the 2017-18 school year. For students without updated documentation, full tuition will apply to all subsequent lessons. There are no additional discounts for students who receive financial aid.
