Program Fees

Registrations are not complete until all payments have been received.

Your registration fee is due immediately upon registration in order to reserve your place in the program.

You will receive an invoice for the balance of your tuition fee  after confirmation of your teacher, instrument, group class assignment and lesson duration.

Payments can be made in 2 ways:

1) Credit or Debit cards:

via PayPal

  • Use buttons below for immediate payment
2) Cheques:

Mail registration or beginner fee payments to:

  • ESFRS
  • 162 Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre
  • PO Box 68178
  • Edmonton, AB T6C 4N6

Tuition fees: wait for your customized invoice which will be emailed to you after your program confirmation. The invoice will offer a choice of paying via PayPal or mailing cheques.


Registration Fee for returning students: (one per family)

$125  – payable immediately upon registration to reserve your place in the program.





Beginner Registration fee: (first year students only)

$200  – payable immediately upon registration.




The beginner registration fee allows you to start attending the Beginner group lesson class immediately, while you take advantage of the opportunity to observe other lessons, classes, and concerts. Once you have completed these required observations, and attended the Every Child Can! class, you will be ready to add individual lessons to your program, and the beginner fee will be subtracted from the balance of tuition owing (based on the number of individual lessons left in the current year). You will also receive a copy of the book Nurtured by Love by S. Suzuki.

  • Parents of very young students (under age 4) may opt to attend the Suzuki Early Childhood Education class instead of the beginner instrument class while they complete their observations. For more information about the SECE class go to: http://www.schoen-duo.ca/lessons/sece/

Tuition Fees: (one for each student)

You will be invoiced via email for your tuition once your registration is complete. If you are registering mid-year, the tuition fee will be pro-rated based on the number of lessons remaining in the year.
