SCHOLARSHIPS

Each student who is accepted is eligible for scholarships which are set up when we make offers. Scholarships can further defray the total tuition, room and board costs. They can be based on merit or a statement of need.

COSTS

Tuition, Room and Board varies depending on length and scope of program, but generally includes coachings, lessons, etc. and breakfast/lunch/dinner Monday-Friday; breakfast/lunch on Saturday; brunch and dinner on Sunday.

PAYMENT OF TUITION AND FEES

A deposit of $500 is due upon notification of acceptance to the Festival. The deposit is required to reserve the place of the student in the Festival and is applied toward tuition, room and board and other expenses. If the student cancels, the deposit is non-refundable. If the festival is cancelled due to COVID, ALL fees will be returned to the student.

SHUTTLE TO/FROM LOCAL AIRPORTS

$35 one way from Pellston (20 min. away) or $85 one way from Traverse City (1.5 hrs away). After you’ve been accepted to the program, you will receive an email from Matt McFarlane, Assistant Director of the Music Festival, to coordinate your transportation and payment.
