Music Scholarship

How do I apply ?

Application forms are available here or by contacting Admissions on admissions@royalrussell.co.uk

Candidates meeting our normal requirements will be required to attend an audition with the Director of Music who will consider their skills and potential. The audition will include a practical performance, sight reading and aural tests.  Candidates must always bring two copies of their music to the audition. One of these copies will be the piano accompaniment if the candidate wishes to be accompanied on the piano. (We are able to provide accompaniment if required.)

Potential candidates who have not obtained the required standard, and still feel they may be worthy of a scholarship, will be required to attend a short pre-audition in order for a member of the School’s music department to decide whether they show enough potential to go through to the main audition.

All applications require supporting documentary evidence including letters from the candidate’s current school and music teachers.  Attendance at audition will not guarantee a successful application.

Following the auditions, successful candidates will receive a scholarship offer conditional upon their performance in the academic entrance exam in January.

We recognise, however, that children develop at different rates and unsuccessful applicants will be encouraged to reapply when appropriate.
