All appropriate fees will be presented to students by invoice, once registration is completed online. Various options are in place for payment of fees.
This is payable at commencement of instruction for all students and is in effect between September 2014 - August 2015. It applies to any Conservatory offering and is payable once annually per family*, so students who participate in more than one activity or families with several musical members stand to benefit more. A reduced registration fee of $20 is offered for students who register for instruction in the Spring term onwards (April, 15).
*Family membership applies to a single household in which there is one financial contact person for spouses/partners and dependents taking classes through QCM.
This charge is applicable to each payment made after the first, and for lesson extensions.
Accompanist fee - $35 per recital or masterclass
This is an optional
fee available to students taking private lessons
on instruments other than piano or guitar. The subsidized rate provides students with the opportunity to work with a Conservatory accompanist for recitals and masterclasses
that are organized by us through the year. Students are entitled to one half hour rehearsal and performance per $35 paid. Rehearsals are not transferable between performances. Students may purchase additional rehearsal time through QCM.
Private Lesson fee (regular tuition) - $50-96 / hour
The private lesson fee incorporates Conservatory costs and instructor fees, and varies between instructor
. Fees can be pro-rated for students wishing to take lessons more or less than an hour in length. Please contact us
for private lesson fees of specific instructors.
