Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance

The Manchester Community Music School is committed to providing tuition assistance to enable families to introduce and keep music in their lives.

Through the generosity of many donors, the Music School’s Tuition Assistance program provides assistance to students with demonstrated need and a commitment to learn. Since its founding in 1983, the school has provided over $2 million in  financial support to hundreds of families.  The amount of aid is based on household income, family size, financial obligations and is limited by the availability of the Music School’s financial resources.   However, consideration is given to families in the event of emergencies, illness, job loss or other extenuating circumstances. Only partial tuition assistance is available, as the Music School’s mission is to be accessible to everyone in the community, regardless of their ability to pay.

To apply for financial aid, please download our Tuition Assistance Form or call the office at 603-644-4548 to have one mailed or emailed to you.
