A number of Instrumental Music Scholarships are available to both prospective and current students of The King David School who are entering Years 6 through 11 in 2020. These scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate promising musical ability. Instrumental Music Scholarships are offered only for a year at a time and are subject to an annual audition and engagement in all the relevant School musical events.
As part of the audition, candidates are expected to perform two pieces of contrasting style on their major instrument or voice. Candidates may also be examined on some technical work, general knowledge, aural tests and sight reading. Besides ability, other factors may contribute to the panel’s decision to award scholarships. These could include the instrumental requirements of the School’s larger ensembles. Holders of Music Scholarships are expected to make progress in keeping with such an award and to substantially contribute to music within the School. Regular daily practice on the instrument is essential and a positive attitude and commitment for other student musicians to follow. Scholarship students are expected to play in the School ensemble program and perform at School events, assemblies and musical productions, as directed by the Head of Music. Scholarships are reviewed annually by the Principal and the Head of Music to ensure that the above conditions are fulfilled.
