With increased risks of aerosols and the spread of COVID-19, in person rehearsals will not be safe as soon as they are for strings. However, we are working hard to create this opportunity for you all to be engaged in BYOV until we can be together again!

Priority is given to families that qualify for the Federal Eligibility for Free & Reduced Lunch (see chart on page 3 of the application). Remaining funds will be distributed if available at the scholarship committee’s discretion. Tuition installment plans are also available. Please consider if this might meet your needs. To apply for financial aid, complete and return the Tuition Assistance Application and supplemental materials by mail or email. The deadline to apply for aid is August 15.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have altered our programming. We are embarking on a six week session of socially distanced, strings only rehearsals for Jr. Strings, String Orchestra, Concert Orchestra, and Symphony Orchestra.  Our tuition structure has been adjusted to reflect these changes.

BYOV is committed to providing the most comprehensive music education experience for its members at an affordable tuition for the session. We are confident that our premier ensemble training program is an excellent value and investment in your young musician’s growth.
