Scholarships for New Organ Students
Scholarships for free organ lessons are available to pianists between the ages 10–25.
Applicants must live or attend school in Orange County, CA.
This program is intended only for students who have not previously studied the organ. Applicants with prior organ study should apply for the Study Grant program.
Applicants are expected to demonstrate basic piano proficiency. They should be capable of performing selections from the Anna Magdalena Notebook (J. S. Bach) or equivalent works.
Applications must be submitted using the online form on the OCAGO website by 1/31/19.
One letter of recommendation from the applicant’s piano teacher or another music professional. Recommendations may be submitted via mail* or preferably emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no application fee for the Scholarships for New Organ Student program.
Candidates for the scholarship will be notified no later than 3/15/19.
Once it is determined that a student is a candidate for this scholarship, they will schedule an interview with an OCAGO-approved organ teacher. If the teacher determines that the student is qualified for further study, the Study Grant Committee will make a final decision regarding the size and scope of the scholarship.
A maximum of six lessons may be awarded.
