Payment arrangements and reductions

Payment arrangements (must be agreed upon before the due date)

You can pay the semester fee in 2–5 instalments. However, the first instalment must be paid by the due date at the latest. We can make arrangements regarding the number of instalments and the other due dates on an individual basis. Send an email to vice principal Niina Haapanen (laskutus@pmo.fi) before the due date of the bill to arrange payments.

Payment reductions (application period ends on 5.6.2022)

The principal of Pirkanmaa Music Institute may grant a reduction on the semester fees for solo instrument or singing instruction for a semester or a year at a time on request. The reduction can be granted due to financial or other reasons, which are determined through a free-form application.
