Keep the music playing

Tuition revenue only covers about 78% of NCMC's annual operating expenses.  It takes the financial support of foundations, local businesses, and individual members of the community to keep our doors open, our tuition rates reasonable, and our scholarship program viable.  Approximately one in seven students who attend NCMC require financial aid from our scholarship program to do so. To date, no qualifying applicant has ever been denied financial aid.  Thank you for believing in our mission and for making music education accessible to all.
