Get a Cost Estimate

String Sprouts accepts students through a sliding scale tuition model. The amount a family pays is based on their total household income and household size. Included in the cost is tuition, an instrument, and all the learning materials your Sprout will need! As always, qualifying families can participate in String Sprouts at absolutely no cost, instrument included.

Sliding Scale

Because String Sprouts is funded through philanthropy, we follow guidelines that consider the size of a household as well as its income when determining how much financial assistance the family will receive. If payment is required from your family, you can choose to pay all at once or in three installments.
