If you are not able to afford tuition as listed or if your circumstances change, please reach out. You will need to fill out an application with details regarding your circumstance and financial information. All information that is provided will be kept confidential. I keep a very small fleet of violins that are available for use of families who qualify for financial assistance. There is a small rental fee.
