The comprehensive fee for the 2015 program is $3,800. This includes tuition for all classes and lessons, plus lodging and meals from June 7-July 1, 2015. Students are responsible for their own transportation costs to and from the festival.

Students are highly encouraged to seek financial assistance from outside sources. Schools, music clubs and organizations, youth orchestras and bands, service clubs (e.g., Rotary, Kiwanis, etc.), businesses, and foundations may be willing to help. Be professional and creative, and start planning early. Check this website for a comprehensive list of organizations that provide scholarships and grants for musicians.
