Our Semester Plan offers deep discount for clients who wish to reserve their weekly lessons for an entire semester. At Forbes Music Company, the year is broken up into two semesters. We closely follow the school calendars, but they may not match exactly. For students signed up on semester plan, winter break dates and Federal holidays are excluded for convenience but we can still schedule lessons during this time. Unfortunately, scheduled dates can not be omitted from the calendar or invoice.


Clients signed up for the semester plan, also get special perks! Here are a few items included with your semester plan purchase:

  • FREE recital sign up
  • More generous referral credits
  • FREE package of online "Office Hours"
  • FREE online, group classes
