QMA Academic Music Programme Scholarship

The QMA Academic Music Programme Scholarship is offered to talented students and is based purely on the merits of their performance. The scholarship can be awarded for any instrument, however if the student opts to study a second additional instrument, then this will be charged at the full tuition rate. The scholarship award process varies according to whether a student is currently enrolled or is a new applicant:

  • Current students: QMA faculty will nominate students based on performance, results and reports from the current academic year. Nominees will be invited to an audition.
  • New students: QMA will identify potential sponsorship recipients at the main enrollment audition. They will be invited back for a second audition at which they will be required to perform two pieces in order to demonstrate technical and interpretive skills. An interview will follow this second audition. 

QMA Instrument Scholarship

The QMA Instrument Scholarship is offered for students wishing to play specific instruments. For the 2016-17 Academic Music Programme, these instruments have been identified as the Nay, Oboe, French Horn, Viola and Trombone. The scholarship entitles the student to free tuition on one of these instruments, including theory and ensembles, as well as use of the instrument.

Scholarships will be renewed based on the following criteria:

  • Every scholar is expected to act as a good role model for other students, and to be a good ambassador for QMA.
  • Teacher reports must be at a level of excellence consistent with QMA academic standards.
  • Participation in recitals, concerts.
  • An excellent attendance record.
  • Commitment and progress in all aspects of study

QMA reserves the right to discontinue, cancel, and eliminate any scholarship based on the above mentioned criteria.
