Schools Program Scholarships

In 2018 Central Coast Conservatorium will introduce a new Schools Program Scholarship which engages students in Years 5, 6 and 7 in a comprehensive music education program for the next three years.  This scholarship is made available through the Conservatorium's funding and is valued at over $2,970 per student (over the three years).  If you are currently in the Schools Band or String Program (you must continue in the Band Program to receive a scholarship. However you can drop the tutorial component of the Band Program as you will be having instrumental lessons at the Conservatorium. This will mean a reduced cost for the Band rehearsal only) or if you are graduating from the Primary School band program to highschool, then you are eligible to apply for one of these 20 scholarships.

Closing date for Applications:  Thursday 25 January 2018
Auditions: Please send your YouTube video of your audition by Thursday 25th January 2018.
In your YouTube clip you must perform for at least 3 minutes – the total time should be no more than 7 minutes. You must complete the application form and tick the box for YouTube Audition.  send your clip to ccconservatorium@gmail.com

If successful, we will contact you to discuss suitable lesson days/times and ensemble membership, musicianship classes.

WHAT IS THE SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP?

Central Coast Conservatorium will offer 20 students from our Schools Program the opportunity to come on board in 2018 with a valuable scholarship that offers 50% off the cost of lessons, an ensemble and a musicianship class each term in the first year, 32% off in the second year and one free ensemble membership in the third year. These 20 students will be managed by a Schools Program Manager to ensure their successful progression from Year One into Year Two and Year Three. We will also ask parents and students for feedback on the program which will help us build a more successful program in 2019.
