Register any time of the year!
PCS offers flexible enrollment. You may start lessons at any time of the year, and pause enrollment as needed. We’ll gladly pro-rate tuition or schedule makeup classes if you start lessons or Kindermusik® classes partway through the month.
Once enrolled, we’ll keep you enrolled until you tell us you need to pause or withdraw. No need to constantly fill out forms to re-enroll. We want to keep things easy and convenient for you.
If you need to make a scheduling change, class change, or teacher change, just let us know via our web form, or by calling our office at 864-232-5010. We’re always glad to help.
Cancellation and Withdrawal
If you need to pause or cancel your enrollment, please send us written notice prior to the 1st of the month. (If notice is received after the 1st of the month, the tuition for the current month will still be charged.)
You may send your written notice via:
- Our online form
- An email to Theresa@PianoCentralStudios.com
- A letter to the PCS Office at PO Box 31047, Greenville, SC, 29608.
PCS offers a hassle-free automated payment system. Simply inform us of your payment preference on your registration form. Tuition will automatically be charged on the 1st of each month, and a receipt will be immediately emailed to you.
A non-refundable enrollment fee will be charged at the time of enrollment for new students. After that, an annual enrollment fees is billed in September of each year.
This annual fee not only helps cover enrollment processing, but also includes the assignment notebook, recital fees, Music Fest fees, and performance events.
Note for Kindermusik®: Kindermusik monthly tuition fees are all-inclusive; there is no additional registration fee.
Students taking instrumental or vocal lessons can expect about $45-75 of music expenses throughout the year for method books, theory books, fun books, supplies, and other resource materials. Music and supplies expenses vary depending on the student’s needs and interests, the type of lesson, and the student’s rate of progress.
We will notify you of any extra charges before your bill is due. If you are enrolled in our automatic payment system, these costs will be deducted at the same time as your monthly tuition.
Music Lesson Practice
Regular practice is key to your musical success. The more you practice, the more progress you will make!
Practice requirements and goals will vary according to teacher assignments and student levels. Students taking instrumental lessons need an instrument in the home.
Parental support is also crucial to the success of each student. To keep parents informed, we regularly communicate via email or flyers. Students in vocal or instrumental lessons also have an assignment notebook to facilitate communication between studio and home.
Absences and Makeup Lessons
Regular attendance at lessons and classes is also important to your student’s musical success. Unfortunately, we cannot give credit for a missed lesson or class, and we’re unable to discount the month’s tuition when a class is missed.
You may make up two missed classes or lessons each school year and one makeup lesson in the summer—contact your teacher to arrange these. Of course, if a class or lesson is cancelled because of snow or a teacher absence, we will arrange makeup lessons without counting against your limit.
In order to keep lessons on schedule for all of our students, we cannot extend a lesson if the student shows up late.
Makeup classes for Kindermusik® students: To make up a Kindermusik® class, you may simply attend another class with extra space. Please call the office at 864-232-5010 to schedule in advance. Unlimited Kindermusik® makeup classes are allowed for as long as you are enrolled.
