The Berglund Family Scholarship

Scholarship recipients must be between the ages of 7 and 18 and have not yet graduated from high school.  Recipients must be residents of Hadley, Amherst, Granby, South Hadley, or Sunderland.  Preference is given to individuals and families who would not otherwise be able to afford private music instruction.  Recipients must commit to a 30-minute weekly private piano lesson held at the same time each week, scheduled at the convenience of the student and the teacher.  90% attendance is required to maintain the scholarship.

To apply, please submit an application form including a 200-word personal statement telling us why you are interested in taking lessons. Applicants aged 12 to 18 should write their own statement.  Parents/guardians of applicants under the age of 12 should write the statement for their children.
