Performance opportunities and Recitals

Throughout the year, BMF offers a variety of performance opportunities for students, no matter their skill level. There are school-wide in-house recitals, which feature a variety of types of students and instruments; there are also more specific and intimate studio recitals, as well as our bi-monthly in-house showcases. "BMF Nite" takes place on a Sunday evening, and it's a great informal opportunity for students of all ages and skill levels to get up in front of a friends-and-family audience. Taking advantage of such performance opportunities is encouraged for the development of any student musician at any stage, but never mandatory. 

Cancellation Policy

For private classes: You must notify your instructor no less than 24 hours ahead if you need to cancel your class, otherwise you will be billed for that class.  
For group classes and boot camps: We require no less than 48 hours cancellation notice for us to provide credit for a future class, otherwise we are left with an empty spot and not enough time to refill it off the waiting list. We are sorry that we cannot issue monetary refunds for cancellations less than two weeks before a class begins.

A note to first-time students:

Buying vs. Renting:

We strongly discourage new students from buying an instrument before having a consultation with their instructor. There are extreme variables in the quality of the student instruments that are sold in stores and online; as well as less scrupulous people selling items that they try to pass off as real instruments, but are in fact, just junk. PLEASE do not waste your money. In nearly every case, it is better to rent, as the quality of the instrument is always higher than the ones they are willing to sell, either at a deep discount or "as is". The old adage applies "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".
