New Students: Group Classes & Bands

Please note:

Your Membership fee plus 15% of tuition are not refundable once you sign up for a class.

Class sizes are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. We cannot hold a spot for any new student who has not paid their annual Membership fee.

There is sometimes a wait to get into a Band Workshop. To be on the Band Workshop priority list, you must be a current or past Blue Bear student (or have paid the annual Membership fee).
