Please Note: Regardless of the way in which you register, you will receive official confirmation of your registration (which is also your only invoice for balance due) via US mail in approximately three weeks. Due to the large numbers of registrants, particularly in the first weeks, receipt of registration (via mail, fax, e-mail, or online) will not be confirmed by phone. If you do not hear from us after three weeks, please call the summer music registrar at 610.519.5050.

Many courses fill rapidly because of high demand. Technology Courses, Instrument Repair, Drumset, and Guitar are particularly popular. In the event your first choice is not available, if you opt for ‘YES’ in the waiting list column, we will put you on the waiting list and enroll you in your second choice (if applicable). Should your first choice become available we will contact you and give you the option to switch into your first choice.
Each course earns a designated number of graduate credits from our credit granting partner, The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, unless otherwise noted. Any course may be audited for no credit if there is room. There is no discount for auditing. Students may repeat a previously taken course, as the experience and content may be unique each time. Be advised that course repetition may not be accepted by many school districts or colleges. In 2013 we do offer the option to take our mini-courses, Villanova Summer Chorus or Advanced Topics in Choral Conducting, for non-credit (and non PDE credit) for a discounted rate of $200.
A $100 non-refundable deposit per course is required for registration. Forms of payment include VISA, MasterCard, Discover (Discover not accepted on the online form), personal checks and money orders only. Debit cards for which a pin number is needed are not accepted. If you are requesting a course less than 14 days in advance, please call to confirm that space is available. Balance is due one month prior to the beginning of your first course - your confirmation letter is also your invoice (additional reminders are not sent by mail).
If you make a deposit in order to be placed on the waiting list for a course that is full, you will receive a full refund of the deposit if a spot in the course does not open.
If you are requesting a course less than one month prior to start of course FULL PAYMENT is due at the time of registration.
