Music Scholarships: For entry to the Lower School (Year 7) and Middle School (Year 9)
A number of Music Scholarships of up to one third of the tuition fee are awarded annually. In addition, successful candidates will receive instrumental tuition on two instruments, one of which must be an orchestral instrument.
A number of Music Exhibitions may also be awarded enabling the holders to receive tuition on two instruments, one of which must be an orchestral instrument.
All award-holders are expected to contribute fully to the musical life of the College.
The appropriate application form should be completed on behalf of candidates for Music Scholarships, and this should accompany the registration form.
The audition for Music Scholarships is intended to discover musical aptitude and promise. As a rough guide, candidates in the 11+ age group should normally be at about Grade 5 standard in their main instrument, while the 13+ candidates should be at Grade 7.
Auditions for selected candidates will take place on Friday 17 January and Saturday 18 January 2014. They will be required to:
- play two prepared pieces (contrasted in character)
- read at sight a short piece
- respond to aural tests
Choral Scholarships and Organ Scholarships: For candidates of all ages from 8 to 16+
Vacancies occur annually in the College Chapel Choir which sings choral services in the Chapel of the Foundation, Christ’s Chapel of God’s Gift, in Dulwich Village.
Choral Scholarships provide tuition in singing and one instrument, and are awarded on the basis of auditions held annually in June.
Choral Scholarships are available for boys with treble voices at ages 11, 12 or 13 and with alto, tenor or bass voices at age 16+.
Choral Probationerships (providing vocal tuition only) are available for boys aged 8, 9, 10 or 11.
An Organ Scholarship is also available to boys at 11+, 13+ or 16+.
The Director of Music, Mr Richard Mayo, is always pleased to see prospective scholars and their parents at the earliest opportunity, to give advice on preparation for the audition and information about the musical life of the College.
