The Scottish Association for Music Education are inviting applications from young instrumentalists playing any musical genre to apply for their 2018 Awards for Young Musicians programme. Award winners will receive flexible funding towards musical costs (e.g. tuition, instrument costs, travel etc.) and individual support.  This may comprise mentoring, workshops with professional musicians, the chance to observe professional orchestras and other ensembles in rehearsal, free tickets to concerts and performance opportunities.  The Awards programme is means tested and our key criteria are musical talent and financial need. Whatever genre the young musician studies, they can evidence their ability in a number of ways; it is not essential to have taken formal exams. More information on the Awards can be found HERE
