Tuition Assistance Program


The mission of Recreational Music Center (RMC) is to cultivate the joy of making music through relevant, cutting edge teaching methods, making them available to EVERYONE regardless of financial resources or other barriers.

RMC offers tuition assistance for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to, seniors, military and homeschool families, family size, as well as financial hardships of every kind. In order to be considered for tuition assistance, please complete and submit the online Application Form.

Tuition assistance will be evaluated on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis using policies approved in advance by RMC's Board of Directors. In evaluating the applicants, the committee will consider demonstrated financial need, number of children enrolled in Recreational Music Center and a commitment to learn. We require families to provide proof of income, either the most recent IRS Form 1040 or proof of assistance.

Kindly allow up to two weeks for processing. After your application is reviewed by the committee, RMC will set up terms and schedule your music lessons. All awarded assistance subject to annual review.

Only partial tuition assistance is available at RMC, as the mission is to be accessible to everyone in the community. All tuition assistance decisions are made based on the available monetary funds, which can fluctuate from year to year.

TUITION ASSISTANCE AND SCHOLARSHIPS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO NEW APPLICANTS. WE HAVE REACHED OUR THRESHOLD FOR THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR.





Scholarship Request Form

Congratulations on your decision to study music and thank you for your interest in our scholarship program.

The acceptance of a scholarship award or financial assistance from RMC carries with it a responsibility on the part of the student. Recipient(s) must have a positive attitude, consistent attendance of 80% or higher, practice on a regular basis and attend seasonal student showcases. Recipient(s) will also be required to write an essay on "What Does RMC and Music Mean to Me?"

Scholarship funds may be withdrawn at any time, if, the recipient fails to meet general eligibility criteria which is expected by the instructor and RMC. The receipt of a scholarship fund does not guarantee a scholarship in the future. All scholarship fund recipients will be required to submit a signed scholarship fund contract to indicate their acceptance of the scholarship award.

The information you provide will be kept confidential and only will be used in determining tuition assistance awards. RMC believes that students who contributes something toward their lessons will value their lessons and their instructor's time more fully. Therefore, even full scholarship students are required to "pay it forward" by donating a minimum of $5 per lesson to the Friends of RMC Scholarship Fund.

In evaluating the applicants, the committee will consider demonstrated financial need, number of children enrolled in Recreational Music Center and a commitment to learn. We require families to provide proof of income, either the most recent IRS Form 1040 or proof of assistance. Kindly allow up to two weeks for processing.
