FAQ Elementary Chorus
When and how often does the class meet?
Please look at your school flier or on the registration system for the dates and times as each school is different. Most chorus classes meet once a week after school. 

Who is the instructor?
We have wonderful instructors who teach at one or more schools. When you register, their name is listed as the instructor and their school flier will also have their name listed. Barring any emergency, these will be the instructors for the entire school year.

How much practice time is required?
 Participants are encouraged to practice at least one day a week to help gain confidence, body movement training and patterns, and to help identify areas that they may need assistance on.

How much is each semester?
Each semester is $133.

It is our goal to make the Elementary Music Program available to all interested students regardless of financial need. The CRPD Financial Aid Fund is limited and to provide assistance to as many students as possible, we ask that parents try to make some payment. Our suggested minimum payment is $50 of the total $133 tuition fee.

What are my options to pay?
Payments may be paid in full, a small deposit can be made with three monthly payments scheduled through the registration screen (stored credit card required for this option), or financial aid is available. If you are requesting financial aide, please do so ASAP so that we can register your child to be able to start classes on time. 

 Payment Plans with Automatic Credit Card Charges:
If making payment helps with you home finances, you can go directly to the registration page and chose the automatic credit card payment option. You will be required to pay the initial $33.25 with a credit card and the balance will be charger in increments of $33.25 on March 1, April 1, and May 1.

Financial Aide Request
 To request Financial Assistance in the form of a partial or complete fee waiver, we have created an online form which you must complete and submit. This form is the registration form for Students Requesting Financial Aid, DO NOT COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION ABOVE - ONLY SUBMIT THIS FORM. Hillcrest Center for the Arts Staff will contact you with approval of your request, and if you are making a partial payment, you will need to do so by calling the Hillcrest Center for the Arts at 805-381-2747.
