Does my child need musical experience?
No, instruction addresses all levels.
Why is the tuition not included in what I pay for school?
YouthSong programs are specialized, independent programs offered to the Academy of St. Paul to supplement regular course offerings and further enable enrichment opportunities for students.
How is YouthSong tuition determined?
When one calculates the number of hours of instruction, most tuition falls between $12 and $20 per hour.
Why are there registration and materials fees?
Registration fees cover the cost of set up of accounts for each student. In addition, each YouthSong course has two charges—a tuition charge and a materials charge. Tuition covers the instruction; the materials fee covers the costs of providing materials necessary for completing the curricular goals, such as: sheet music, books, music folders, handouts, arrangements, transpositions, music downloads, and more.
When are performances?
Performance, recitals and showcases will be held at the end of each class or academic year, appropriate.
