Tuition
Important Tuition & Expense Information

To accurately value our Conservatory Program classes, we have dedicated a significant amount of time, research, and thought to a fair and sustainable cost of tuition. This value includes:

Our world-class faculty, who rigorously and personally train TK Studio actors to succeed in a highly competitive industry.

Our modern facilities in the heart of Brooklyn’s Industry City, a burgeoning community of creatives that is accessible to, and yet separate from, the hyperstimulation of the city.

Building on nearly four decades of training actors, TK Studio has refined a process to access the depth and breadth of human emotion and imagination to inspire powerful performances while protecting and promoting the actor’s well-being.

We believe that our customizable, focused, top-quality programming will save you time throughout your career and better equip you with the confidence and security to turn any script into rich and compelling behavior. The pricing of our classes and programs reflects the value of our instruction, and the level of commitment we expect: these learning opportunities are for actors who are dialed in, ready to invest in themselves and take themselves seriously, and who are committed to seeking the highest level of excellence. Each of our programs has been carefully crafted to provide the highest value to you, while keeping in mind your goals and available time.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

We want our classes and programs to be accessible to artists from all backgrounds and lived experiences, and to that end, we do provide a limited number of Work Study opportunities to students who qualify. Work Study students are selected based on proven financial need, and positions are granted to students who demonstrate both a helpful role in our artistic community and a consistent commitment to their studies at Terry Knickerbocker Studio. Currently enrolled students who are interested in learning more about Work Study opportunities may contact our Student Services.

TK Studio is also proud to offer The Excellence Scholarship, which provides awards between $500 and $2,000 toward tuition for artists of color in the Conservatory Program.
