Music Lessons  


Music Extension offers after school lessons, to help your children further their ability and knowledge of their chosen instrument: violin, viola, cello, flute, saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. These lessons are for students in grades 5-8 at the Public Schools of Brookline.

To register, you must complete this Student Form and pay for one of the options below. You are not fully registered until you complete both parts.

Some Important Policies:
1. Payment: Full payment is due at the time of registration. If you are not able to make a full payment at the time of registration, then a payment plan is possible upon approval. A student will not receive a schedule until payment has been received, or we have confirmed a specific payment play. Discounts or waivers do not apply to this program.
2. Registration Fee: Each participant will be charged a $6 registration fee.
3. Financial Assistance: Please complete the signup form (see link above) and registration (by phone), even if you are waiting a financial assistance decision.
4. Withdrawals/ Refunds: If you withdraw your child before October 1, 2019, a $25 processing fee will apply. The $6 registration fee is non-refundable. No refunds will be granted after October 1, 2019.
5. Schedule Changes: These lessons are schedule for the entire school year. Once lessons begin, we cannot accommodate schedule changes. 6. Absences: If your child misses a lesson, this lesson will not be made up.
7. Canceled Lessons: In the case that the teacher needs to cancel or there’s a snow day, then this lesson will be made up at the end of the school year.
8. Holidays: Music Extension lessons follow the Public Schools of Brookline calendar. If the schools are closed, then lessons will not meet.
9. Early Release Days: Lessons will still meet on early release days, except on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, when there will be no lessons.
10. Instrument Rental: Information about renting instruments will be provided after registration from the Performing Arts Department.
11. Confirmation: Once we’ve scheduled your child, we will send out an email confirmation with your child’s schedule and location. If you don’t receive a confirmation by September 18, 2019, please call BA&CE at 617-730-2700, ext 0.

PLEASE NOTE: If your child has taken any programs with us in the past (including Music Extension, SmartSummers, or one of our SmartVacation programs), then you do not need to create another account. You will only need to login to your account and pay for the lessons. If you forgot your password, the system can send you a temporary password.
