WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION IN TCM ORCHESTRAS?
To be a member of a TCM ensemble, a student need only audition. It is encouraged that a student take private lessons from some source to compliment their music education as this will help them succeed at a much faster rate.
WHAT IS THE COST TO PARTICIPATE IN A TCM ORCHESTRA?
Tuition per semester is $300. Current students of TCM may break up these payments into five monthly installments. Students not taking private lessons at TCM will be required to pay the $300 orchestra fee in one installment. All payments must be paid via credit card. There will be no refunds for orchestra if a student decides to withdraw during the semester.
