Bursaries Available At Community School of Music And The Arts
Ten Bursaries of $350 Offered
Parents who can’t afford to enroll their children in music lessons at the Community School of Music And The Arts at CMU can now apply for financial help.
Through the generous assistance from the Kuhl Foundation, the School is able to offer bursaries of $350 each to ten families for the 2008-09 school year-half of the cost of a year’s fees.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this assistance to families who want their children to take lessons,” says Arlene Kroeker, who directs the School. “We don’t want anyone to miss out because they don’t have enough money.”
In order to qualify for the bursaries, applicants need to be musically talented, demonstrate financial need and be able to pay the other half of the School’s fees.
Now in its third year, the Community School of Music and the Arts at CMU offers music, art and acting lessons and classes. Last year 180 students took lessons in piano, violin, cello, guitar, woodwinds, brass instruments, percussion, voice, Music for Kids and Vocal Fusion, along with drawing, painting, cartooning and mixed media.
The School aims to “provide instruction in music and the arts that encourages students to develop their individual talents and abilities, and challenges them to be the best they can be,” says Kroeker. “It's a place where students can receive instruction from excellent and well-qualified instructors in an educational atmosphere.”
Classes begin September 1, 2008. Lessons are available for children, youth and adults. The average rate for an individual lesson is $19 per half hour, $28.50 per ≤ hour and $38 per hour.
