We carefully budget each year to offer scholarships for lessons and classes, and our scholarship fund depends upon the amount we can raise through events, sponsorships, grants, and individual donations. Most years we have been able to approve every application, but approval does depend upon available funds and the amount of applicants.
For our merit based scholarships there are only three available and applications will be reviewed and scholarships awarded to the three students who best match the criteria.
We offer various group classes and workshops for all ages including K-12 art clubs, pottery, and preschool programming. We also offer family workshops as well as music events and enrichment activities. Our Arts programming includes literary, visual, theater arts, and more. If the events and workshops do not receive enough registrations we may postpone that class or club for awhile but we generally reschedule for a future date or the next school year.
Lessons are usually a half hour long, but hour-long lessons are also an option. Lessons usually take place once a week. The schedule is more flexible over the summer, when you might have fewer lessons or have to plan around vacations and trips.
Headwaters has Schmitt Music instruments available for purchase or rent.
