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.
