Tuition & Fees

Tennessee Summer Music Festival is extremely grateful to be supported by a number of friends, colleagues, grant-making organizations, and strategic partners to make this festival a reality. For our 2019 summer season, TNSMF costs $550 for the entire week, which includes program tuition, room & board, and all resources required to participate fully in the program.

Comparable programs typically cost more than twice as much per week, so we really could not host this program without the generous support of Tennessee's philanthropic arts community. Scholarships are limited and we provided on an as-needed bassis; we also try to spread our scholarship dollars as far as possible by offering as many partial scholarships as we can, rather than full scholarships. Please inquire for more information regarding student scholarships. We ask that you send a $50 non-refundable deposit upon completion of your child's application to reserve their place at the Tennessee Summer Music Festival.

If you know of any generous individuals or organizations that are interested in supporting the arts, arts advocacy, education, or investing in our state's number one asset (our children), please enthusiastically encourage them to support TNSMF. Thank you so much!
