June 1 deadline
BAMTA is pleased to announce that scholarship funds will be available to students this year. The scholarship target amount is $400, although the scholarship committee has the latitude to award more or less depending on circumstances and available funds. The Multiple Piano Festival is the source of our scholarship funds. The scholarship money will be paid directly to each student’s teacher and applied toward tuition for the fall semester. Scholarships will be awarded to students who demonstrate both musical ability and financial need, although financial need will be the primary determining factor. A committee of teachers will review scholarship applications and recorded performances. Teachers will be notified in June of the application results. The scholarship application can be downloaded from the bamta.org website. Applications consist of a financial statement submitted by student’s parents, a tape, CD or DVD of the student performing 3 solo repertoire pieces, and a letter of recommendation from the teacher. Applications must be sent by June 1 to Mitzi Babb (7248 Petursdale Ct., Boulder, CO 80301). Winners will be notified by June 30.
