Through the generosity of many donors, the Music School’s Financial Assistance program provides assistance to students with demonstrated need and a commitment to learn. Since its founding in 1983, the school has provided over $1.4 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.
