PAYMENT INFORMATION (Lessons or Ensembles)

Fees for the choir depend on which choral group within the choir your child has been placed - Jubilate or Bel Canto. Fees for Jubilate are $350 and are $450 for Bel Canto. You can pay the deposit and balance for your fees online with credit card or by check. See below to pay by either option.


Group Lessons are $75 for a package of 6 weekly, 1-hour lessons, and must be paid in full before the first lesson. Scholarships for group lessons (grades 1-12 only) are available through our partner, BeInstrumental, for those who qualify. Visit the BeInstrumental web site for details.


Private Lessons are private music instruction lessons and are $90 for a package of 6 lessons. To register, you must contact the department chair, Dr. Lee Heritage, directly so that he can assign a teacher to teach the lesson.

CANCELATION POLICY - Group Lessons, Private Lessons or Ensembles

Please read the information below carefully. The information may be slightly different, depending on whether you are taking music lessons or are a member of a community ensemble for which you have paid to participate. All fees are expected to be paid in full IN ADVANCE before your first lesson or rehearsal. Refunds will be issued in full or in part according to the following conditions. Otherwise, assume there will be no refund.

If YOU need to cancel your registration:

  • You have one week prior to the first session to cancel, so that your seat can be given to another student.
  • If you cancel one week prior to the first session, you will be given a full refund of any fees paid.
  • Cancelations after one week before the first session will not be refunded.
  • If you are sick and cannot attend a session, please notify your teacher/ensemble director by email. But there will not be a refund.

If WE cancel a session due to inclement weather or for any other reason:

  • Lessons or rehearsals/performances will be cancelled only if the University of Toledo is closed for any reason or cancels classes during the time the event should have taken place. Please visit the UToledo home page or tune to local media for closing information.
  • If we cancel a music lesson and it cannot be rescheduled, a refund of the value of 1 lesson will be issued for that lesson. No refunds will be issued for rehearsals. Any ensemble performances we cancel will be rescheduled.
  • If the teacher is unable to be at the lesson, we will provide a substitute teacher. If this cannot be done, a refund for the lesson will be issued for that class, if the lesson cannot be rescheduled.
  • If an ensemble director is unable to be present, the rehearsal will be cancelled for that date. No refunds.




If the participant is UNDER 18, their parent/guardian must complete a minor participation/consent form. It will need to be completed and signed by the first lesson. The online form can easily be filled out and submitted from a smartphone. We'll print the form you submit, but you will need to sign it in person at your child's first lesson. You can also print the filled out form yourself and bring it with you to the first lesson. Students who are under 18 CANNOT PARTICIPATE WITHOUT THIS FORM!




We want every participant to enjoy their group music lesson experience. This form outlines behavioral expectations and the consequences for not abiding by them. It must be signed by youth participants and their parents. Download the form, complete it, sign it and bring it with you to your first lesson. Extra copies will be available at the first lesson.
