We're in the process of re-designing our website for easier use and maintenance. As you look around you'll undoubtedly see some portions are still under construction. We'll be adding and updating over the summer, so stay tuned!

Group & Private Lesson Program

Our group and private lesson program has wrapped up for the year. We will launch again in the fall. If you are looking to schedule some private lessons over the summer we would highly encourage that and may be able to help you find an instructor. Contact one of the directors through Remind if that is the case. There are still a number of students who have yet to finish paying for their lessons for this past semester and we REALLY need to get those funds in ASAP so that we can cover our costs!


Online Payments

The Spaulding Music Department is excited to announce that we are now able to accept online credit card payments for fees and other bills through our CHARMS Parent/Student Portal using PayPal (no account required - just use the guest checkout option)! This is just one of several new features offered through the system with others to follow in the future.

Students were supplied with their Charms ID # earlier this year and a "one-sheet" that explains how to log on to the system.

A copy of the instructions can be found HERE. Ask your child for their ID number, or contact Kate Hayward for assistance.

Please Note: A small surcharge will be added to each transaction to cover processing fees charged by PayPal.

We hope this service provides you a welcome alternative to sending money or checks in with your students, however you may also continue to pay using any of the methods with which you have in the past.
