Financial Aid at BKCM is mission-driven. We aim to transform lives and build community through music. Providing tuition assistance to our students and clients is one way to achieve that mission. 

Please note the following:
  • Applications are now CLOSED for Suzuki classes and Music Therapy in the 2023-2024 school year.
  • BKCM offers tuition assistance to those students and clients with significant financial barriers.  However, full tuition coverage is not available. 
  • BKCM receives some awards that are intended for BIPOC children.  If you believe that your child would qualify based on how they identify, please share that information in the appropriate fields in this form.
  • Income verification is a required part of the application process. 
  • Aid is awarded based on the availability of funds, financial need and programmatic needs.
  • Financial need is determined by income, family size and extenuating circumstances.
  • Only completed applications will be processed. 
  • This application is only for applying for financial aid.  It does not confirm receipt of financial aid nor enroll you in classes. 
  • Questions? Please contact Kris Mandapat, Financial Aid Coordinator: kris.mandapat@bkcm.org
