The Commuter Tuition fee of $3,200 includes six lessons, six chamber music coachings, all classes, concerts, and workshops, two meals a day only, and no housing or local transportation.

The Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival provides some scholarship assistance to qualified students who cannot afford the full cost of tuition. Scholarship awards are determined by the Artistic Director, who takes into consideration the requirements of the program and the financial need of prospective students. As the Festival’s funds are limited, students are encouraged to investigate sources of financial assistance which may be available in their own community.

Your overall application to the Festival must be complete in order to be considered for a scholarship. The deadline for scholarship applications is March 1, 2017.


Work-study awards

All festival students receiving larger amounts of scholarship will be asked to take on a work-study task of approximately 3 hours per week, and all scholarship applicants are asked about the skills they could offer. However, the Festival does not determine financial aid by filling specific work-study positions paying specific amounts.


Resident Assistant positions

The Festival selects several students each year who are 21 or older to serve as Resident Assistants. RAs will live among younger festival students and handle significant supervisory and driving responsibilities. In return, they receive a scholarship award which covers all but $500 of festival tuition. Potential RAs will be required to undergo a background check and to submit a clean driving record in advance of final selection. 

RAs will be expected to arrive early to the festival (Thursday, June 22) and stay until the afternoon of Sunday, July 23. Anyone interested in being considered for an RA position should email a resume and cover letter to Barbara Lawrence including details of related experience, in addition to submitting a complete and timely application to the Festival including a scholarship application.



A billing statement will be emailed in mid-April and again in mid-May to all students, with copy to a parent (if a parent email address has been provided).
