All appropriate fees will be presented to students by invoice, once registration is completed online. Various options are in place for payment of fees.

Registration fee - $40


This is payable at commencement of instruction for all students and is in effect between August 2017 - July 2018. It applies to any QCM 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, 18).

*Family membership applies to a single household in which there is one financial contact person for spouses/partners and dependents taking classes through QCM.

Service charge - $4


This charge is applicable to each payment made after the first, and for lesson extensions.

Accompanist fee - $40 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 QCM accompanist for recitals and masterclasses that are organized by us through the year. Students are entitled to one half hour rehearsal and performance per $40 paid. Rehearsals are not transferable between performances. Students may purchase additional rehearsal time through QCM.

Private Lesson fee (regular tuition) - $50-100 / hour


The private lesson fee incorporates QCM 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.
