A bursary programme that funds talented and highly motivated children who do not have the financial means for regular music tuition. The scholarship covers the cost of small group instrumental and theory lessons and instruments, while giving the children the opportunity to play in a variety of ensembles and at regular performances.

Each scholarship runs for up to four years and has a value of around £3500. There are currently thirty-four scholars in the programme playing a wide variety of instruments.
Auditions are held annually, usually in the second half of the summer term, for children in Years Three through to Six attending a state school (including Academies and Free Schools). Please contact Lucy van Straubenzee at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
