Below you will find our courses offered as well as the fee for each individual one.

 

Please register using our Application Form, which will guide you through the process. Click on any of the Application buttons below. Please allow for a few seconds for the application form to load!

At the end of the registration process, you will find instructions on how to pay via bank transfer. If you prefer to pay via PayPal (please use hollywoodmusicworkshop@gmx.com), you will have to add a 4% surcharge to the total amount to cover the PayPal fees.

Please note, that you have to transfer the deposit of 100€ for each course you have registered for in order to secure your place. If you would like to choose to pay the whole course fee at once, you are free to do so to save banking fees for example. Again, all of the courses you have chosen need to be fully paid latest by May 31st.

You can also see those instructions right below the examples, right after this text – and also in the FAQ section for reference.

 

After receiving an email confirming that you applied, please transfer the course fee(s) to our account.

Upon arrival we will send you an email confirming your participation.

 

Each participant will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of each respective course.

As always, if you have any questions, you can contact us. We are happy to help.

Examples

This is a lot to digest – if you want to see a few examples to make this easier to understand just click the little plus sign at the right side of the below „Some Payment Process Examples“ box.

Below the example box you find for reference details on how the payment process works. You also find the same information again in our FAQ section at the bottom of this page.

Some Payment Process Examples

Here are some examples to explain the various options and due dates.

In all the examples we assume that you want to register for a class with a fee of 1080€ and an early sign-up fee of 960€.

Example 1: You want to make use of the early sign-up fee. You register before April 15th and you pay immediately the 100€ deposit. Your seat is now reserved. Now you still owe us 860€. You pay the remaining 860€ by May 31st the latest – and you are done, your seat is secured and fully paid.

Example 2: You register after April 15th but before May 31st. You now have to pay a course fee of 1080€ as the early sign-up offer expired (what a shame that you missed it…). You pay immediately the 100€ deposit. Your seat is now reserved. Now you still owe us 980€. You pay the remaining 980€ by May 31st the latest – and you are done, your seat is secured and fully paid.

Example 3: You registered for a course before May 31st (either before April 15th using the early sign-up deal or after April 15th using the regular course fee). You pay immediately the 100€ deposit. Your seat is now reserved. And you still owe us the remaining course fee. But now, for some strange reasons, you fail to pay the remaining course fee by May 31st. Now you have lost your seat and your fee deposit is gone, we won’t return it as we kept the seat open for you – potentially declining other registrations after the course has been completely booked.

The only thing you can do now is to contact us to find out if there is still a seat open. If so you will have to pay the full regular fee at once (1080€ in this example) and you are back in the game. But again, your initial deposit is gone, so we really hope this won’t happen to you!

Example 4: You decided last minute, after May 31st, that you want to be part of this very unique film scoring academy. In that case contact us to find out if there is still a seat open. If so you will have to pay the full regular fee at once (1080€ in this example) and you are good to go! But we really recommend to be smart about this and register much earlier than that – you clearly don’t want to miss this great opportunity!

Hope these examples helped to clarify our registration and payment conditions.
