Education That Rocks! — Grand Opening

Fred Barrera and Jonathan Arias set out to make their dreams come true when they opened Flat 5 Music Studios. Although the two entrepreneurs have been teaching music for over 10 years, their studio was officially introduced to the public on September 8th, 2012. What started off as as a dream, became a reality with their grand opening that looked to give back to the community. With the help of YSBM Consulting Services, Flat 5 Music Studios hosted the first annual Back to School Blues, Giving Back to Our Youth Event. The event brought together the community of Laredo in an effort to donate school supplies to the students of UISD as well as encourage small business development.

Studio Policies

Studio Policy

Tuition is due no later than the 5th of every month. A $10.00 late fee will be incurred after the 5th, please make sure all fees are paid to avoid this charge.

Tuition reserves a student’s lesson time each week. Any lesson a student does not attend will be a forfeiture of that lesson. One lesson per four week paid term may be rescheduled at the consent and availability of the class or teacher. Student must notify teacher and the school of music of any cancellation at least 24 hours in advance. One group class per quarter may be attended at another time depending on available space in that class.

All private lessons are scheduled on an individual basis. Instructors conduct lessons weekly at a set time for 45 minutes. Group lessons are limited to no more than 5 students per classroom. Your registration reserves your time slot for the duration of the month. All Scheduling is on a first come first-served basis.

All students are expected to come to class on time with their books/handouts and instrument unless you have made other arrangements with the music studio. No food, drinks or use of cell phones will be permitted in class. No cussing, yelling or pushing of any other student will be tolerated.

Any returned checks will be charged an NSF fee of $35.00


If a student withdraws no less than 24 hours before first lesson, he/she will receive a 100% refund provided tuition is already paid in full (registration fee not included). Any withdrawals made after the first lesson will receive only partial credit and will be subject to a $25 administrative fee. No refunds will be issued after the second week.
