Public School Student Music Scholarship Fund
REQUEST AN APPLICATION TODAY
G-Clef Music Academy has launched a new scholarship program fund totaling $20,000.00 that targets public school children ages 6 to 15. Scholarships are now available for public school students to receive music lessons for half the regular group lesson cost. G-Clef Music Academy is receiving support from several Economic Development Commission (EDC) beneficiaries and sponsors to help public school students take advantage of the cognitive benefits that music has to offer.
Music has been scientifically proven to “engage practically every area of the brain at once; and disciplined, structured practice in playing music strengthens brain functions.’ ‘Musicians solve problems more effectively and creatively, in both academic and social settings.”* "G-Clef, the largest non-profit music education facility, is committed to cultivating a greater learning environment in the St. Thomas community," said Academy Director, James H. Gumbs, Jr.
G-Clef Music Academy, located on St. Thomas at Mandela Circle in the LaBorde Plaza Building on the second floor, is accepting scholarship applications to place students in its After-School and Saturday Music Academy programs that provide 90-minutes of weekly music education in two instruments. Students can select piano, guitar, singing, violin, drums, and/or steel pan. Some instruments are offered on certain days of the week. The After-School Music Academy is offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 3:30pm to 5:00pm and the Saturday Music Academy has two group music lesson times at 10:00am to 11:30am and 3:00pm to 4:30pm.
