Guiding Principles for

Southwest Washington Symphony

Scholarships for Private Musical Instruction

1.

Scholarships will be awarded based on student/family needs. The scholarships are for one-year period, from September 1 to August 31. A

scholarship may be renewed by a student with the submission of an updated application each year.

2.

The scholarship year begins September 1 each year. The application deadline will be July 15. Family members will not be considered as pri-

vate instructors for purposes of awarding scholarships.

3.

Families are expected to share in the cost of private lessons to the extent that they are able. The Symphony will not insist on knowing the de-

tails of a family’s financial situation but will instead rely on the family’s honest evaluation of their ability to pay a portion of the cost.

4.

Applicants will be considered for all musical disciplines, including voice, but preference will be given to students who play an orchestral in-

strument. There is no obligation to participate in the Southwest Washington Symphony or any of its activities.

5.

Applicants must have had some prior musical training, either in school or through private study. Accordingly, instrumental applicants must

be enrolled in grades 5 – 12. Vocal music applicants must be in grades 8 – 12 due to concerns about the physical development of children younger

than 13 or 14 years of age.

6.

A major consideration in considering a student’s application will be the extent to which they have demonstrated a commitment to consistent

practice. The Symphony will request that the applicant supply contact information for a person, such as a school music teacher or private instruc-

tor, who can attest to the seriousness of the applicant’s commitment.

7.

The Symphony’s share of the cost will be paid when invoiced by the private instructor. Invoices will be submitted quarterly. The student’s

share can be paid in any manner agreeable to both the student’s family and the instructor.
