Young musicians are supported through the Humberside Rotary Club Music Bursary Scheme
The Tribune Trust have assisted young musicians by providing a Music bursary in partnership with Humberside Rotary Club
The aim of the music bursary scheme is to give financial support to some of Hull’s Schools young talented musicians who are from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Scheme grew out of very successful charity concerts at Beverley Minster and the Hull City Hall and a passion to improve the educational outcomes of some of the Hull youngsters. It is run in partnership with the Hull Music Service in order to help more young people realise their musical potential. The scheme has provided a newfound confidence and enthusiasm for those who have taken part and it has also lifted their whole educational experience.
The Music Bursary Scheme has enjoyed an excellent start. To date, a total of 27 bursaries have been awarded to talented young musicians who, without that financial support, would have been unlikely to receive the tuition their talent deserves. The bursary provides for specialist music coaching over a seven year period.
