Awarded students will perform at our final meeting of the year at the Grammy Foundation in Santa Monica.
Students prepare an appropriate solo work and audition for a panel of three judges. Judges award students with a scholarship (typically $250) to be applied to private lessons. Students should be playing in an ensemble so that the scholarship benefits both the individual student and the music programs with which they belong.
