Financial Aid

Crescendo is committed to providing need-based financial aid to all qualifying students for piano lessons, violin lessons, voice lessons, 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 17th. Applications for summer program scholarships should be submitted by June 1st. Late applications may 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. 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.
