Your child deserves the best start in life. We want what you want: to nurture your child's unlimited potential through high-quality, carefully crafted instruction and guidance.
But that doesn't mean it shouldn't be affordable! Our rates are simple, straightforward and accessible for every family in our community.
Our season is based on 9 equal payments, and we offer discounts and incentives for families that pay in advance, and families with multiple children who attend Brio.

The cost of this program (which doesn't include team hoodie or costumes), is $60+HST per month.
What are the rates for your Music Together classes?
We are not running a Fall 2020 Music Together session, as information about COVID-19 and singing is still being discovered, and appropriate physical distancing is not always possible with very young children. We're looking forward to welcoming our young students back in January 2021.
Our award-winning Music Together family classes offer parents, caregivers and young children the opportunity to grow and experience the early stages of musical development together. They are offered in 10-week sessions, and include invaluable family resources that are yours to keep.
Students with multiple children under the age of 5 in the same Music Together class will receive a 50% discount for each additional child. The fee for materials is per family - there is no additional materials fee for additional children.
What are the rates for your musical theatre intensive program?
Our Musical Theatre intensive is the only program of its kind in our area. It offers 2.5 hours of instructional time per week, with the goal of performing a fully-costumed, staged production of a hit broadway musical. This program includes training in music, theatre and dance.
Monthly tuition fee: $120+HST
There will be a costume fee of $50 per family, which will be charged in February..
The program is split into two age categories: Our Musical Theatre Intensive is for students ages 8-14, and no experience is necessary to join. Out Teen Performance Team is an elite, audition or invitation-only team for experienced performers ages 14+.
What are your tuition fees for private lessons?
Fees for private lessons are $25 per half-hour lesson. There are additional fees that come up during the course of study that are not included in these fees. These additional costs include, but are not limited to: registration fees for competition or performance, sheet music fees, the cost of an appropriate instrument and upkeep of the instrument.
Private lessons are not part of any multi-class or family discounts.
Do you offer any family or multi-class discounts?
Absolutely! We offer discounts based on number of classes, so no matter how many children you have in your family, you receive significant discounts for multiple registrations.
Is there anything else I should know about?
Brio's season runs from September to early June. For group classes, we take the entire year’s tuition total and divide it into 9 equal payments due the first of each month from September to May. The September payment is due upon registration, and this secures your child's space in the class. We do not charge registration fees at Brio. The 9 equal tuition payments take into account all holiday closures, and provides for two weather cancellations per season.
Holiday observances for the 2020/21 season include: Thanksgiving Monday, Remembrance Day, Christmas Break (Dec 21-Jan 3), Ontario Family Day, March Break, Good Friday and Easter Monday. We WILL run classes on Victoria Day, in preparation for performances in June.
We also want to give you plenty of time to try out our programs, and find the right fit for your family. That's why we offer the opportunity to register in the fall and drop or transfer without penalty until November 30th. After that, a one-month penalty will apply.
What about costumes?
For our music, dance and performing arts classes, we will hold an end-of-year performance in June. Costume/uniform requirements will be distributed during the first month of classes, and deposits for any required pieces will be due in October of 2020. The balance will be due in April, 2021.
A gi (karate uniform) for Zanshin Dojo can be purchased through the main office. A gi is required for any student registered in a class at Zanshin Dojo. Kinder Kix students may also purchase a gi from Brio.
Dance wear can be purchased through us, or through any other dance wear supplier.
