Step 1: Visit the studio / meet the teacher
The first step is to schedule an initial meeting with the teacher, parent and child. Please text or call 828-342-5390 to set up a meeting. We will discuss the requirements of the scholarship and you can take an application to fill out.
Step 2: Submit your scholarship application
Turn in your completed application with a picture and wait to hear about scholarship availability. If you do not get a sponsor the first semester you apply, your application will be good for the following semester as well.
Step 3: After confirmation of scholarship, schedule your first lesson and first two practice sessions if needed!
Spring semester is February-April. Summer semester is June-August.
Fall semester is September-November.
Opportunity is “the means to pursue a goal.” Your child being sponsored for private music lessons is a great opportunity that can help them educationally, emotionally, and developmentally! They need your support in this endeavor more than ever. No amount of sponsorship can replace the emotional support and encouragement a family can give! You can build a strong family bond through practicing with your child, attending lessons and concerts, and helping to motivate and affirm what an awesome job your child is doing. This will help them not only to achieve great progress in their lessons but in so many other areas of their lives as well!
- Students will receive weekly private lessons at the Oh Suzannah Studio.

- Practice requirements: first month=1 hour a week, second month=2 hours a week, third month and beyond=3 hours a week.
