To find out more about our Music Scholarships, please register for our Virtual Music Scholarship Event on Saturday 5 December 2020.
You will have the opportunity to hear from our Director of Music, Mr Miles-Kingston, who will discuss the scholarships, the application process and the format of the auditions. You will also be able to ask any questions you might have about Music Scholarships at St Peter's School.
The following awards are available:
Scholarships are available to young instrumentalists and singers who can offer a broad range of skills to the Music School. At audition we would normally expect a level of Grade 5 on the first instrument for 13+ entry and Grade 7 for 16+. We would also expect to see a second instrument offered but potential is the most important aspect. The ability to play an orchestral/band instrument is essential and singing is an advantage. A good background in theory is also recommended.
Edward Long Scholarship
Albert Edward Long was a former member of staff who generously left provision for a number of music scholarships to be awarded each year.
Dean Milner-White Scholarship
One scholarship is available each year for a Minster chorister only. Dr Eric Milner-White was Dean of York and Chairman of Governors at St Peter’s School.
About the Scholarships
The music scholarships can carry a concession on fees ranging from 10-30%. This may be increased for exceptional candidates. The scholarship awards also cover tuition on up to three instruments and instrumental examination fees. Award holders have their tuition within the department with one of our specialist visiting team. It is expected that award holders study academic music to GCSE and the majority continue to A level. The progress of award holders is continually reviewed by the Director of Music.
These awards are made available to young instrumentalists or singers who show ability and potential at audition. The awards recognise how we value our young musicians and the importance we place on nurturing their talent. The award covers the cost of tuition on an instrument/voice.
