All City Student Resources

Settlement Music School is committed to supporting students in the All City program. If you are interested in private lessons, Settlement Music School's dedicated staff will help you find the right teacher to meet your musical goals. 

Settlement is committed to making our programs affordable and accessible for all. The cost of your lessons will be determined by your family's income. All that is required is for a parent or guardian to attend a registration appointment and to provide a pay stub, a letter from an employer, or a tax return. Settlement is proud to award $2 million each year in financial aid and scholarships. Contact your preferred branch today and our staff will guide you through the process.
