Welcome to the Yinghua Academy Conservatory of Music. We offer private music lessons taught by professional musicians after school at Yinghua Academy. The only thing better than the convenience we offer is the excellence of our staff!

Session I music lessons Online registration for after-school music lessons runs at the same time as registration for Enrichment Program classes.

Music lesson registration and scheduling does not carry over from one school year to the next school year. You must register anew each fall.

  • Your Session I music lesson registration and schedule will carry over to Sessions II and III. There’s no need to re-register in Session II or III if  your child will continue taking lessons.
  • Payment is per session.
  • You pay a cancellation fee if you drop during a session.
  • Contact Jenny Alvermann before the beginning of a new session if your child does not plan to continue lessons.
