Music Makers Tuition

Color Stripe Graphic

WYSO Music Makers membership includes private lessons, group classes, performance opportunities, instrument rental and care, sheet music, and a T−shirt. Like all programming at WYSO, tuition for Music Makers represents 30% or less of the total cost to support a musician in the program.

WYSO Music Makers strives to keep costs as low as possible for our families by offering generous tuition grants  to meet a range of sliding scale fee options. These tuition grants are made possible through the fundraising efforts of the WYSO board, staff, and families.

Suggested monthly tuition levels:

30% – $60/month

20% – $40/month

10% – $20/month

Other (pay as you are able)

Every contribution helps our mission, no matter the amount. Though this list represents a few suggested fee levels, some families pay more and some pay less depending on individual circumstances.  At registration, please let us know your planned monthly contribution to your WYSO Music Makers tuition- we are happy to adjust the amount of your tuition grant as needed
