The comprehensive fee for the 2016 program is $3,900. This includes tuition for all classes and lessons, plus lodging and meals from June 12-July 6, 2015. Students are responsible for  arranging and paying for their own travels 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.
