Returning Students

Returning Students: Group Classes & Bands

  • If you’re in a continuing group class you may purchase your class online; from the Master Schedule page, go to the class description page for the category of class you want to enroll in (Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Voice, etc.)
  • Any current or former student may purchase a class online, but if you have a new address, please add your new information on the registration page
  • You may need to renew your annual $35 Member Fee
  • Online purchase does not guarantee a spot is available in the class
  • We will follow up to confirm
  • No online enrollment for Band Workshops – call the school: 415.673.3600 or send an email
  • Speak with our Program Director if you are unsure which class is best for you

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 student who has not paid their tuition.

Do not assume that a continuing class is happening and just show up on the first night of class without enrolling. We cancel classes with insufficient enrollment – let us know if you plan to continue!
