AMEB Piano Scholarships 2018

AMEB Victoria is delighted to announce that a program of scholarships will be offered in 2018 to encourage the development of Piano students who: 1. live in regional and rural Victoria (3-6 scholarships) OR (2) identify as being from Indigenous backgrounds (3-6 scholarships).


The scholarship program aims to advance the knowledge and skills of students and their teachers in relation to technical and artistic aspects of music performance at AMEB Level 2.


The scholarships will fund travel and accommodation for selected students, each accompanied by a chaperone and a teacher, to participate in a weekend masterclass and workshop led by specialist teachers, to be held in April 2018 in Melbourne.
