Through our scholarship endowment, we make the arts accessible to every child, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Nearly 54% of our students are on scholarship, ranging from 20% to 90%. We have more than 60 instructors, most with advanced degrees and professional performance experience, including members of the Pacific Symphony.
