Admission is on a rolling basis and students may start lessons at any time if we are able to find a good teacher and scheduling fit. Tuition would be prorated based on the number of lessons left in the term.


We believe that music education is a joyful and enriching experience for people of all ages. The ability to make music education available to everyone in the community has always been of great importance to the School. A Tuition Assistance Program, funded primarily by the School’s Annual Fund, provides generous tuition assistance to students who might not otherwise be able to take music lessons.

Tuition assistance is available and is based on financial need.  Application forms may be obtained by contacting the office or downloading a form below, and are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee during the summer and on a rolling basis while funds remain. A complete copy of the most recent tax return must be included with your application. Renewal is contingent upon teacher recommendation and Tuition Assistance Committee reviews.
