Our founders believed that if a student had a desire for music they should be able study regardless of their ability to pay full tuition. The commitment to students in financial need remains strong and tuition assistance in the form of need-based scholarships are available to students of all ages & abilities. Any student who feels they cannot afford full tuition may apply by filling out a scholarship form.
Scholarships are provided on a sliding scale determined by a combination of:
- Family's reported income,
- Weighing of extenuating circumstances, and
- Amount of tuition the family can realistically afford. A recent tax return, pay stub, or paperwork regarding disability or public assistance must also be provided for verification of income.
The executive director reviews the information and strives to fill any gap between the tuition fee and what the family is able to pay.
