Fall 2023 Registration

Registration for all IUPCMS classes, ensembles, and private lessons is officially open on Aug. 7, 2023.

    • Note 1: Ensemble and class registrations and subsequent participation can happen up to two weeks past the first rehearsal or class, but only with the permission and approval of the ensemble director or class instructor.

    • Note 2: As it is throughout the entire year, private lesson registration is flexible and ongoing throughout the semester; however, most students sign up for a full semester of lessons, or nearly the full semester, depending on their schedules. The fall 2023 semester is 14 weeks.

Note 3: The crimson "Register Now" bar on the Registration Page is only for students completely new to the IUP Community Music School. Anyone who has been a student at any time in the past should simply email to register for the upcoming semester and with inquiries.

If the "Register Now" bar does not work for you, please immediately email and let us know!

Registration Fee

The IUP Community Music School assesses a $25 registration fee per individual student, per semester for the fall and spring semesters. This fee supports a very small portion of the total administrative costs associated with running the school.
