How to Register - Community Music School

Please contact our Continuing Education department at 604 527 5472 to register for any Community Music School course. (Online registration is not available at this time.)

How to Register


  1. Please ensure that all prerequisites have been met before registration and, in the case of performance ensembles, that you have emailed to request an audition.

  2. Contact Continuing Education at 604 527 5472 with the following information (and be sure to indicate that you are registering for a non-credit course through the Community Music School):

    • Course name

    • CRN 

    • Your Ƶ student number (if you are a returning student)

  3. Payment for all Continuing Education courses is required within 24 hours of registration. Payment options include Visa/Mastercard, Interac Online (selected banks only) or, if necessary, online bill payment through your financial institution.

  4. Please retain your payment receipt and registration form for tax purposes as we do not issue tax receipts. Community Music School fees may be claimed as an income tax credit under certain conditions. Please check with the Canada Revenue Agency to determine eligibility.



Classes cancelled by the instructor will be rescheduled. The CMS is not obligated to reschedule or issue credits for classes missed by students. 


Refunds are only available to persons who request a withdrawal or transfer more than three business days before the start of the course. A $15.00 processing fee will be charged for each course withdrawal. No refund will be issued if course fees or the refund amount is less than $15.00. No refunds will be issued once the course has started. Requests must be received in writing. Full refunds will be made automatically if the CMS cancels a course. 

If you require general information about Community Music School courses, please write to us at and provide the course name(s).
