The MVCMS is committed to helping interested children who show aptitude pay for music lessons with its Scholarship Program. The number of applicants has increased considerably since the program’s inception, as has the cost of private lessons. Last spring the Board voted to increase its scholarship funding by one third to meet this need. However, even with this increase we were not able to assist all qualifying applicants. Parents have been enthusiastic about their appreciation of our support and the positive influence music has made in the lives of their children.
We are very grateful to the Permanent Endowment Fund for a grant that will enable us to purchase two 1/4 size ‘cellos. These instruments will be made available at a modest yearly rental for students who could not otherwise afford to rent an instrument.
Donations specifically designated for these programs are gratefully accepted.
