HOW TO REGISTER

Both new and returning students may register individually for all classes and private lessons. Tip: after you select the class or lesson you want, you will see a calendar appear. Click on the first date you want and then select "recurring" to select additional dates. 

Private Lessons
Please contact us directly about scheduling private lessons. Once we've given you a time, you will be able to return to this page to enroll. To do so, select the option that applies to you (either 30, 45 or 60 minutes at one of our three venues.) The calendar will appear and you may select your time. As with classes, select the first date you want and then select "recurring" to select additional dates.

Package Registration for North Side Advanced Students
Advanced students on the North Side may purchase a package that allows you to pay monthly for ensemble class and private lessons. Scroll to the bottom of this page for detailed instructions.

BEFORE YOU REGISTER: PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ OUR ATTENDANCE AND PAYMENT POLICY.

 

How to Pay Monthly For A Private Lesson/Class Package

Advanced ensemble students on the North Side may register for a private lesson/class package on a monthly payment plan. To register for your lessons and classes, please read ALL the instructions and then follow these steps.

1.) Scroll up from here to the "Packages" section. Select "Advanced Ensemble Subscription" and purchase the package you would like: 10 lessons (weekly) or 5 lessons (every other week.) You will be billed for the first month immediately, and the same amount monthly for the next three or four months depending on your package. After completing the initial payment, you will receive a code that will allow you to schedule your 5 or 10 private lessons and eleven ensemble classes. You may have all of your private lessons at the same venue (either Murphy's or Chief O'Neill's,) or you may schedule some at one location and some at the other. 

2.) Click "Redeem coupon or package" on the main subscription page, enter the code, and click "Apply." You will then have the option to schedule three different things: all private lessons you wish to have on Sundays at Murphys; all private lessons you wish to have on Tuesdays at Chief O'Neills; or all of your ensemble classes at Murphy's. It doesn't matter which one you do first. Select all the dates for each option and confirm the appointments. NOTE: you MUST use the "Package Scheduling" links to schedule your private lessons. You may schedule your private lessons for any available time at either Murphy's Bistro or Chief O'Neill's, but bear in mind that lessons at Chief O'Neill's must be scheduled a minimum of 1 week in advance. 

3.) Go back to the main registration page and repeat the process as needed.
