2019 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PIANO PRIVATE LESSONS
The Symphony Guild of Decatur will offer at least two (2) private piano lesson scholarships from a Millikin School of Music teacher, valued up to $800.
Auditions are open to any Macon County student grade 7-11 who studies privately. The Marilyn Mertz Scholarship is designated for a student in 7th or 8th grade and the Margaret Fassnacht Scholarship is designated for a student in 9th-11th grade.
Perform 2 selections showing 2 different styles of playing—fast and slow—from 2 different time periods. The student must provide the original music for the judges with the measures numbered. The selections must not exceed a total of 10 minutes of playing time.
The judges would appreciate having a photo and some information about you as they make the final decisions. Feel free to use the back of your form for additional extracurricular activities and biographical information. The photo may also be used for publicity purposes when winners are announced.
Students will be placed for instruction based on playing ability as determined by the Education Committee and Millikin staff. Winners can lose their scholarships if multiple lessons are missed or not set up by the end of September. An alternate winner will then be contacted to receive the scholarship.
Former scholarship winners who receive the recommendation of their Millikin private teachers are welcome to continue private lessons without audition.
