Request for Schedule Change

Code of Conduct
CSPA reserves the right to suspend or discontinue any student at any time due to a lack of interest, extreme absences, behavior problems, regular tardiness, failure to make payment, or noncompliance with CSPA policies.
Music lessons are often a family affair with parents attending to ensure better practice at home. If you must bring along siblings to a lesson or group class please be prepared to supervise children at all times. Please do not leave children unattended at MAC or K-State.
CSPA offers students opportunities to perform once the student is ready to do so. Performance is part of becoming a well-rounded musician and participation is not required but is strongly encouraged. Studio recitals are scheduled by the instructor. We apologize that we cannot accommodate everyone's individual schedules, but we do try to choose a time that is convenient for most families.
By enrolling with Community School for the Performing Arts you agree to receive phone, email, and/or mail communications from Manhattan Arts Center, K-State School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and the CSPA registration software regarding your account, schedule, upcoming events, and other important information. Please notify MAC if you have a change in your contact information.
Students awarded scholarships must make a minimum $100 payment at the time of registration.
Students are not put on a class roster until initial payment has been received. Summer lessons are always optional.

For students who pay less than full tuition at the time of registration and cancel before lessons begin:
