Total Scholarship Money Raised!


Music is such an important part of education and life development. We believe that tuition cost should not hinder those who are eager and willing to learn. Tilghman's Academy of Music offers scholarships to those who show great potential and willingness to learn. Scholarships may be given based on teacher recommendations and/or through auditions. Scholarships can be offered for private lessons or for group classes. We put on fundraiser events to help cover the cost for student tuition. Students can also earn credits for classes by volunteering at our fundraising events. For more information about scholarships, please contact us.
