Steps to Join BYO

After a musician auditions and is accepted into the orchestra, the following steps need to be completed to both register for BYO and enroll in Laney College (part of the Peralta Community College District).

 

These steps can be done concurrently and both must be competed before the first rehearsal in order to participate in BYO. Having BYO as an official course at Laney College helps reduce tuition (by around $200/musician/season) and earns musicians college credit!

BYO Registration

1. Orchestra Manager emails the family a link to the registration form.

2. One parent/guardian completes the online form which includes electronic signatures for all orchestra policies.

3. After the form is submitted an invoice for the season tuition will be emailed to the family (this will usually occur by mid-August).

4. Family submits electronic payment prior to the first rehearsal via a link on the invoice.
