Payment can be made by cash, check, e-check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. You may choose to pay your tuition on an annual, bi-annual, or monthly payment plan.

  • Annual — In full at time of registration
  • Bi-annual — Half at time of registration, half due Feb. 1
  • 11 monthly payments — due on the 1st of each month

PLEASE NOTE: The monthly payment plan does not correlate directly to the number of lessons received in a given month. If students have elected to take extra lessons (more than the 40 lessons included in their yearly tuition), they will be billed separately and should pre-pay at the time lessons are requested.

There will be a late fee of $10 per month for payments received after the 10th of the month. OCM reserves the right to suspend or discontinue instruction of any student who is delinquent in fulfulling his/her financial obligations at any time during the semester.

Did you know your tuition only covers 70% of our costs?

Our annual tuition, which includes 40 weeks of private instruction plus the opportunity to attend dozens of Conservatory events at no additional cost, doesn't cover the total cost of your musical education here. If you would like to help us cover the remaining 30 percent, please give what you can — or consider being a recurring donor to support our mission all year long!
