Applications are now closed for scholarship entry in 2020.
Music Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate a high level of musicianship to assist them to maximise their musical education.
Music auditions take place at Great Southern Grammar. Students may audition on any instrument and are required to present two contrasting pieces, some technical work, and three scales or exercises appropriate to their developmental level. Students may choose to perform on more than one instrument, with one piece on each instrument.
Music Scholarship recipients are required to be a member of at least one GSG ensemble and will be encouraged to participate in as much music at the school and within the Albany community as they can manage, balancing their music, academic and other commitments.
Music scholarship recipients are to be available for all school ensemble performances, such as Easter service, Foundation Day services, annual concerts, award ceremonies, assemblies and Chapel services. Some of these events occur outside of school hours.
Students are expected to demonstrate an ongoing high level of commitment to their musical development maintained through weekly individual lessons with a specified teacher and a regular practice routine of a minimum of five sessions a week for 30-60 minutes as recommended by their teacher.
Music Scholarship recipients are required to undertake Specialist Music as an elective in Year Eight. In Years Nine and Ten, students are required to complete the year-long Specialist Music course to prepare them to complete the ATAR Music Course in Western Art Music in Years Eleven and Twelve. The school encourages students to include ATAR Music as one of their subjects in Years Eleven and Twelve, however this is not a requirement of the Music Scholarship.
