As part of the mission of Valley Music Academy, financial assistance for tuition for Musikgarten and private music lessons is awarded to eligible students through the age of 18 in the form of scholarships.  Scholarship availability and amount of award is determined annually based on grant funding and the state of Valley Music Academy’s current financial budget. VMA awards scholarships based on (1) the financial need of the family and (2) the musical progress, effort, and potential of the individual student. VMA uses the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines in determining scholarship amounts.
