Consitency in lessons and regular practice plays a major role in the growth of any musician. Therefore we highly recommend students take, at a minimum, one half-hour lesson per week. More advanced students may need extra lesson time and therefore we offer forty-five and sixty minute lessons as well. We also offer an array of ensembles and bands as a supplement to lessons. Playing in ensembles and bands helps strengthen a student's overall musicianship.

US Military Discount Program

Effective January 2015, the New Jersey School of Music, LLC is proud to adopt a Discount Program for active members of the US Military. This discount may not be combined with any other coupons or discounts offered by the New Jersey School of Music, LLC. To thank you for your service, we now offer two options:

  • For those choosing our standard monthly tuition payment option, the Military Discount is equal to 10% off of our regular single lesson fee. The first month's fee is payable on registration. Thereafter, payment for each month is due at the first lesson of the month, for the month ahead.

  • For those choosing our new semester tuition payment option, the Military Discount is equal to 11.5% off of our regular single lesson fee. The fee for each 13 week semester (January through March, April through June, July through September and October through December) is payable in full on registration. Thereafter, payment for each semester is due in full during the last week of the previous semester.

All other aspects of our policy are applicable to those enrolled through our US Military Discount Program.


Instrument Rentals

Music instrument rentals are only available to students enrolled in private lessons at the New Jersey School of Music. All rental fees are applied towards the eventual purchase of the instrument. For students who need fractional sized instruments, we will grow the instrument as the student grows and transfer all previous payments towards the new instrument.

  • Cello and Electric Guitar/Bass Rentals:
    $75 for 3 months
  • All other instruments:
    $60 for 3 months


Practice Intensive

Practice intensive lessons are for students who need help learning HOW TO practice. These lessons are great for students in band or orchestra who need extra help working through their assigned music. Practice intensive lessons are sold in bundles of 4 lessons and have an expiration date 8 weeks from the date of purchase. They can be scheduled anytime (NJSM schedule permitting) within that 8 week period. Once a lesson is scheduled, there will be no make-up classes offered for missed or canceled appointments. Practice intensive lessons can be scheduled in groups of 2 and 3 as well. Rates are as follows:

NJSM Student Rate: $85 (4 lessons)

Non-NJSM Student Rate: $125 (4 lessons)

Group Rate: $65 per student (4 lessons, limited to 2 or 3 students per session)


Additional Information

We do not charge any registration fees but do require payment for the first month's lessons upon registration. Once a student is registered we expect to see them weekly at the time assigned. We understand that on occasion conflicts arise and therefore we allow four absences per calendar year with make-ups. We do not guarantee make-up class availability for absences beyond the fourth. There are no financial credits offered for students absences.

If schedules change and you need to move your lesson time around we will do our best within the confines of our schedule to accomodate your needs.

To discontinue lessons we require a two (2) week notice at which point all outstanding balances must be paid.
