Music Education is for Everyone
We believe that everyone, no matter their financial resources, should have access to high quality music education. We offer a variety of opportunities to help everyone sing and play at Upper Valley Music Center.
Our Tuition Assistance Application is now available online, to make the process easier while the office is closed during stay-at-home orders.
Tuition assistance is awarded to a student on the basis of need, availability of funds, and commitment to music study. Students may be awarded tuition assistance for up to one set of individual lessons, one group class, and one ensemble per person per semester. Students of all ages may apply.
Adult Work Study (Suspended)
For adults looking to contribute to UVMC’s operations and programming, apply to the Work Study program. Qualified participants receive tuition credit. Work Study opportunities range from supporting events to music library organization to building maintenance. Have a skill or talent you think would be an asset to UVMC? Let us know on the application form. Hours and tasks will be mutually agreed upon during the application process. Financial need is considered for this opportunity. Availability of work study funds is limited. (Status: This program is currently suspended. We will update this page when it becomes available again.)
All information is held in strict confidence. Tuition Assistance and Work Study applications must be completed at the time of registration before the first lesson or class in order to be considered.
Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis: applications received by the 15th of the month will be reviewed and you will be notified of an award, if any, no later than the 25th of the month. A new application must be submitted for each term. The remaining balance must be paid in full or by electing a payment plan before classes begin. In order to apply for any of these opportunities, please submit a completed application and attach appropriate tax documents. Applications are available in the UVMC Office or maybe printed using the link below.
