BYS Classes and Ensembles

Class and Ensemble List

All tuition rates are for the academic year. Classes and rehearsals have maximum and minimum sizes and we may cancel a class or move students to other classes based on rosters. If we have over-enrollment we may split classes.

We are aware that COVID19 has hit families very hard, and we are happy to share our rich financial aid coffers with you. Just click the Financial Aid button below for more information. Split payment options also available.

We will never turn anyone away over money. There is a place for everyone at BYS, and all you need to do is click the registration button below and fill out the form to get on our roster and mailing list. Please remember that registration is not a financial commitment and you will not be charged just for enrolling.
