You may notice that tuition rates have increased for our 2021-22 season. This increase was necessary to match the increase in operational costs including: space rentals, payroll and additional covid compliant expenses. Additional details on BYSO’s specific funding and expense allocations are available HERE
Payment instruction links are emailed to students and families with their ensemble assignments. Families can choose to pay tuition in by quarter or annual tuition in full. When families make an annual tuition payment they receive a $40-$45 discount.
Tuition is due by the second rehearsal of the quarter in which the student joins BYSO. Tuition is non-refundable.
Do you need help with tuition?
We are committed to ensuring that all families, regardless of income can participate in BYSO ensembles. All families should explore BYSO’s generous financial aid program. We have set aside a significant financial assistance allowance to support any family experiencing higher-than-usual pressures or burdens this Fall. Learn more here: BYSO financial aid
- $40 Audition/Registration Fee: This is non-refundable fee for each audition (including advancement auditions), payable at the time of the audition. Students in Youth Symphony and Percussion Ensemble who do not need to audition pay a $36 registration fee.
- Optional Costs: The costs of tickets and other variable and optional items such as concert videos are not covered by tuition fees.
We ask all BYSO families to fulfill at least four hours of volunteer service per musician per year. Many different simple tasks are available. We often also have office odd jobs and small projects that are perfect for students needing a few more Community Service hours. View volunteer tasks or sign up now.
