Program Information

Structure of our Program 

Our year is divided into two sessions: Fall and Spring. Accommodating families' needs drives our design, so we designed our year as two sessions to give families maximum flexibility around the school year calendar, Holidays, Thanksgiving, Spring break and Summer break. 

Approach to Mastering the Fundamentals

Our goal is to provide each and every student a comprehensive, world class music, string and orchestral education. This includes learning and mastering fundamentals ranging from music theory, reading, musicianship and ensemblemanship, to the instrument, technique, tone production, vibrato, shifting and other advanced technique.

  

Payment Options

Payment can be made in one of two ways. The first option is a single payment (processed as a one time payment covering the entire session) for the complete full Fall or Spring sessions as they open for registration. 

The second option is monthly payments for the Fall or Spring session, which allows families to pay for the complete Fall or Spring session in four equal installments. This option will bill monthly a total of 4 times, and is based on tuition spread over 4 billing cycles with no interest or any additional fees.

Incoming Students | Equipment

Brand new incoming students will need to order their Youth Orchestra shirt and music stand. These can be ordered through our store now. If the child has a professional portable stand with a hard top that meets or exceeds our music stand requirements, please contact us at artisticdirector@npys.org to check. All new students will need order their Youth Orchestra shirt. Both of these items can be ordered through our store.
