Parking is allowed in the Fine Arts lot only if you have a CMP hang tag with a current sticker.

New students: You must obtain a plastic hang tag from the Community Music Program office (which will be good for the session) or a visitor pass from the information booth for one time use.

Returning students: You will need a new sticker to update your old hang tag each session. You will not be issued a new hang tag. If you discontinue lessons in the program, please return your hang tag to the program office.


Once we have received your form and payment we will have a teacher contact you to schedule lessons. We will hold your check until lessons have been scheduled and return it to you if scheduling is impossible. *Instruction may begin at any time during the session -use the table on the rates and fees page to determine your payment according to your starting week.
