Tutti Scholarship and Endowment Funds

“Without financial support, participating in the Academy of Music would not have been possible for me. Music has given me a sense of purpose – my wish is that future generations are given the same opportunity I have had!”
– Carla, Tutti Scholarship Fund recipient

The Lawrence Academy of Music is committed to providing music instruction to every student regardless of family income level. National research shows that music instruction creates strong and measurable gains for everyone—not just those who display a talent for music—in foundational skills such as pattern recognition, reasoning, and confidence. Whether a toddler-caregiver pair in Early Childhood Music, an elementary school singer in Girl Choir, a middle school student in gamelan, or a high school student in private lessons, each student deserves access to musical instruction that helps them express and explore their musicality.

In 2003, the Tutti (the Italian term for "everyone together") Scholarship Fund was born to support this goal. This is the fund that currently provides our annual tuition assistance awards. We also recognize the importance of looking to the future. With that idea in mind, the Academy of Music has launched the most ambitious fundraising initiative in our history, with a goal of $1 million to endow the Tutti Scholarship Endowment Fund. Success will ensure we can provide music education to every student for years to come. If you have questions about the Tutti Scholarship Endowment Fund or the Tutti Scholarship Fund, please contact Kara Muchow at 920-832-6551.

With your help, the Tutti Funds will provide...
  • Access to music instruction for 1 in 10 Academy students annually who would otherwise be unable to afford music instruction
  • The preparation required for these students to join a musical community after high school
  • A legacy of music-making in our community
