Scholarship Program

The Music Conservatory aims to ensure that every student can participate in our programs. We understand the wide range of individual financial circumstances and offer a number of scholarship opportunities for youth and adult students.

Youth Scholarships

The Conservatory provides tuition assistance on a sliding scale for qualifying youth ages 4 to 18, based on household income, family size, and special financial considerations. Scholarships are updated yearly, and may be continued through high school graduation.
