Financial means should never be an obstacle to musical study. We offer various tuition assistance options.
Starred discounts cannot be combined.
Sliding scale discount*
Private lesson/group class discount*
Tuition for group classes is reduced by 50% with concurrent enrollment in private lessons. (Limit one group class reduction per private lesson enrollment).
Multiple group class discount*
Take more than one class during a single quarter and receive a 10% discount on additional group classes.
Seniors aged 65+ can apply for a sliding-scale discount. Seniors who do not qualify for the sliding-scale discount will receive a 30% discount instead.
Each additional person from the same household enrolling in private lessons or group classes will be given a discount of $3.00 per lesson or class. This discount is available to full-fee students only.
Scholarships and Tuition-Free Programs
In addition to tuition assistance, CMC also offers a number of scholarships and tuition-free programs:
Full scholarships for private lessons (ages 18 and under):
A limited number of full scholarships for private lessons are awarded to students age 18 and under based on financial need and merit, based on a nomination from a CMC teacher and a juried audition. Please ask your CMC teacher (or registrar) about this opportunity.
