TMS offers extensive and affordable programming to fit all needs.  

We work to lessen the financial boundaries preventing people from creatively expressing themselves through music. The Music Settlement is committed to providing top-quality Music, Music Therapy, and Early Childhood education for all, regardless of background. Financial aid and merit scholarships are available to those who qualify

Payment Plan Policies:

  • Auto Pay Option:  You have the option to have your payments automatically deducted from a credit/debit card on the first of each month. For further information regarding automatic payments, please contact the Enrollment and Customer Service office at 216-421-5806 ext. 100.
  • Late Fees: Payments are due on the first of each month. A $10 late fee is charged on the 11th of the month.  When a payment is received on an account with late fees, payment is always applied to late fees first; the remainder is then applied to the balance.

After making your initial down payment, any remaining tuition will be spread out through a monthly payment plan, where the remaining tuition is divided equally over the months.
