Special Needs Scholarships

A limited amount of scholarship money is available to children with disabilities to attend our Music Pups and Music Cats programs. Scholarships require a letter from a service coordinator or physician/therapist. Please contact us for additional required information prior to submitting a scholarship request.

Scholarships are not guaranteed and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

On November 16, 2018, The Maximus Janton Foundation first provided The Music Class with additional resources to fund tuition scholarships to families with special needs! 

Maximus Janton Foundation

The Maximus Janton Foundation was created in memory of TMC student, Max Janton. Max was born with Costello syndrome, an incredibly rare condition that comes with a variety of health issues, and physical/cognitive delays. Max and his family spent most of their days at doctor or therapy appointments but reserved Fridays for The Music Class. In October of 2017, Max had to have heart surgery. While the surgery seemed to be successful, he passed days later from a catastrophic stroke. In the wake of their loss, the Janton’s have started a non-profit in Max’s name, The Maximus Janton Foundation, to help serve the special needs community in a variety of ways, and The Music Class is one of the first beneficiaries they selected. 

The Maximus Janton Foundation has continued to support The Music Class and provided TMC with another significant donation to our scholarship fund at our 2019 Holiday Ball! We are so grateful and honored for their generosity.

"Our daughter loves it. She is six now and we started in the class when she was less than a year old. We truly believe that Rob and music played a big part in her verbal skills being so good and her love for people and rhythm. Our daughter has Down's Syndrome. We highly recommend starting all children in the class early. " - P.T., Atlanta, GA
“My child does not walk, does not talk, and is intellectually disabled. He attended The Music Class for 6 years, from age 4 months to age 6 years 4 months... My memory of The Music Class was that everyone - teachers, parents, and all the other children - was extremely kind. Throughout my child's life, he has loved music. While he doesn't talk, when he hears a familiar tune he screeches with delight. In public school, music has been used as part of his communication lessons. Every now and then, I sing to him a song I can remember from The Music Class. He smiles with joy because he knows those songs are familiar to him. It's as if he is saying ‘I'm so happy.’” - Results from an alumni survey of families who attended The Music Class in Atlanta 10 or more years ago.
