Win a Yamaha Music Scholarship!
‘Yamaha Music Europe Foundation Scholarships 2022 – Woodwind
As one of the world's largest manufacturers of musical instruments, Yamaha believes passionately in musical education. The company sees itself as a partner of the European cultural landscape and wants to contribute to its growth and preservation, by supporting musicians. Yamaha's scholarship program is designed to make the often very long and arduous path to success for music students that little bit easier.
What is the scholarship?
The Yamaha scholarship is awarded once a year, with the competition disciplines changing each year. Scholarships are awarded based on a selection process. The first step of this is to submit a video recording. Up to ten candidates will be selected from these entries and invited to attend a national audition. During this live audition, a panel decides whether a scholarship will be awarded based on the musical abilities and the visible potential of each applicant. The panel is made up of leading educationalists and musicians from the respective instrument group.
In 2022 the awards are for Woodwind students and the live final will take place in February 2022. Yamaha will generously reimburse the travel expenses of any finalists who study outside of the host city. Full details of the final date and location will be confirmed at a later date.
Am I eligible?
We are inviting applications from students studying full-time at UK institutes of higher education and born after 1st April 1996. We feel sure that you have some suitable applicants and would like to encourage you to put forward the names of aspiring young musicians who you feel would qualify for this award.
