There is a once-yearly non-refundable $35 registration fee per student ($50 per family). No registration fee is charged for summer study. 

There is a $15 fee per term for payment plans.

BMS is committed to removing any financial barriers and tuition assistance is available.


We believe that music education is a joyful and enriching experience for people of all ages. The ability to make music education available to everyone in the community has always been of great importance to the School. A Tuition Assistance Program, funded primarily by the School’s Annual Fund, provides generous tuition assistance to students who might not otherwise be able to take music lessons.

Tuition assistance is available and is based on financial need.  Application forms may be obtained by contacting the office or downloading a form below, and are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee during the summer and on a rolling basis while funds remain. A complete copy of the most recent tax return must be included with your application. Renewal is contingent upon teacher recommendation and Tuition Assistance Committee reviews.
