MUSIC:LINK Bursary Scheme

“I was so honoured to be awarded the bursary … but nothing could have prepared me for the incredible opportunities I would experience.”

“The knowledge I have gained will last me throughout my musical career.”

B15 String InstrumentsThe constituted MUSIC:LINK charity (registered charity no. 1108127) remains with key trustees who continue to administer the residual funds for its Bursary Scheme. The scheme has now completed its tenth year and bursary awards have been given to 32 young musicians totalling over £16,000. The scheme was devised to encourage and support young musicians to help ensure the continued performance of live music.

Part of the founding MUSIC:LINK constitution includes the promotion of music and its development within the Lincolnshire and East Midlands area. The MUSIC:LINK Bursary Scheme supports this by providing funding for attendance at workshops and master classes or similar courses to promising, talented young musicians of school age to encourage them to reach a standard where they can give public performances.

Applications for awards have come from a wide variety of disciplines and bursaries have been granted to a cellist, cornet players, euphonium players, flautists, a harpist, a guitar player, organists, percussionist, pianists, saxophonists, singers, trumpeter, trombonists and violinists.

If you know of any promising young musicians who you feel could benefit from any aspect of this Scheme, or would like more details, please email keith@jobling.net. Applications, with background information on the applicant, their musical background and achievements, support documentation, recommendations from music teachers or societies, can be sent to MUSIC:LINK Bursary Scheme, 4 Redcar Close, Lincoln  LN6 8TA
