Financial aid is granted to students on the basis of family need and the Music School’s availability of funds. New and continuing students enrolled in private lessons, classes, or ensembles are eligible for financial aid.

Continuing Financial Aid Applicants:
If you are a current financial aid recipient looking to continue your aid into the Fall/Spring 2024-2025, the deadline for applications is August 1, 2024. Please contact Nicole Laurin, Registrar, to submit a new application.

New Financial Aid Applicants:
The deadline for new applicants is August 1, 2024. New applicants may apply on a rolling basis after the deadline has passed, but funds may be limited or unavailable as financial aid is awarded in the fall for the entire school year.  Please submit your application as soon as you are able!

A family’s financial need is the primary consideration in determining awards. The Financial Aid Committee also considers temporary unemployment, emergencies, illnesses, and total music training expenses. All student financial aid information is confidential. Continuation of assistance depends on evaluation of the student’s musical commitment and progress. Financial aid recipients are encouraged to provide volunteer services for the Music School as scheduled through the office.
