The Lawrence Community Music School is committed to providing music instruction to every student regardless of family income level.

  • The Tutti Scholarship Fund (tutti is the Italian term for "everyone together") provides our annual tuition assistance rewards, including $5,000 distributed annually from the Tutti Endowment Fund.
  • The Girl Choir Empowerment Fund was established in 2016 specifically for the Lawrence Girl Choir program in order to help girls from all backgrounds find their voice.
  • The Carol Leybourn Chamber Music Scholarship Fund is available to assist those who qualify for tuition assistance and may also be available as a merit award for students who demonstrate a high level of interest and motivation in their chamber music participation.

Need-based scholarships are available for all Community Music School lessons, ensembles, and classes during the academic year. Please note that scholarships are unavailable for summer programming, including summer lessons. Awards from our scholarship funds are limited; most families who receive assistance from this fund have an annual household income between $15,000 and $50,000.  Families with higher annual income levels are eligible for smaller awards in special circumstances, such as a job loss or high medical bills.  Awards are re-evaluated and renewed annually.  Please note that full scholarships are not awarded but we will work with you to develop a plan that is affordable.

Continuing students must submit a complete financial aid application, including current Community Music School teacher recommendation, no later than June 15 for the 2024-25 academic year. New students must submit their financial aid application and music teacher recommendation at the time of enrollment.
