Crescendo is committed to providing need-based financial aid to all qualifying students for private lessons, Music Together classes, group classes, and more. Recipients of financial assistance must reapply prior to the beginning of each new school year. To receive full consideration, applications should be received by August 15th. Applications for summer program scholarships should be submitted by June 1st. Late applications will be considered if funds are available. Current students’ accounts must be up to date in order to be considered for aid.
It should be understood that funding for financial assistance through CAM is limited as it is dependent upon grants and donations received. However, every effort will be made to assist those students who, because of financial difficulties, would otherwise be unable to study at CAM.
Financial aid is awarded based on household income eligibility. We use the federal guidelines for Free and Reduced Lunch Eligibility to guide our decisions. Requests for financial aid must be accompanied by your most recent federal tax return, public assistance documentation, free/reduced lunch determination letter, or proof of unemployment. Incomplete applications cannot be processed. Supporting documentation cannot be returned; please submit photocopies only. Multiple students from the same family may be listed on a single application. The student account must be current in order to be considered for financial aid. All information submitted will be kept in strict confidence.
To apply, please submit a financial assistance application below. Contact the office for any additional information.
