Band Director Announces Full-Tuition, Performance-Based ScholarshipsIn addition to offering 50% off tuition for all students with prior band experience to join the MMI Band, Performing Arts Director Mr. Jason Aylward is now offering three full-tuition, performance-based scholarships with a deadline of June 1.
Details below are from the Band/Chorus page:
The Marion Military Institute Band is a diverse ensemble with many duties and performance opportunities, including concerts, parades, jazz ensembles, and chamber music. Individual lessons are available free of charge to any ensemble members on any instrument. A wide range of scholarship opportunities are open to band members, with a small number of generous performance-based scholarships also available. Contact MMI’s Director of Performing Arts Jason T. Aylward below for more information.
If you’re interested in auditioning for the available Performance-Based Full Scholarships and haven’t already applied, follow the directions as follows:
- With as high quality audio as possible, record a video of yourself playing a lyrical and technical excerpt of your choice, each being about one minute in length. (For percussionists, please play one excerpt on Snare Drum, and one excerpt on Marimba.)
- In no more than 500 words, describe your instrumental experience, and what makes you a good candidate for the scholarship.
- Upload your videos to YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, or Dropbox, and send the links to email@example.com by June 1st for consideration.
