Studies show how music helps with emotional and educational development. The Melody Makers Scholarship Foundation continues its mission to give the gift of music!
This Scholarship allows the student to train in voice and/or dance, based on their audition. It includes an opportunity to train with our Performing Groups. Scholarship applicants are asked to write a short essay on why the Melody Makers Scholarship should be awarded to them, and what they hope to achieve with the training they receive. After their application has been received, an interview/audition date is scheduled.
This year, not only did Emily write a fantastic essay, she also brought confidence, cooperation, and most important of all, dedication to her performance and her team. – Congratulations Emily!
