Plug in to Your Potential

Applications are now closed

INCUBATOR is an exciting new music opportunity for young people in the region to plug in to their potential, run by South East Arts. Designed to enable a promising young musician (12 to 18 yrs) to step up, hone their craft and take their skills to the next level.

Incubator is a scholarship aimed at young people who would normally find it difficult to cover the cost of regular music lessons, providing $1000 towards the cost of music lessons for 1 year, paid directly to the student’s nominated teacher/tutor.

Nominations for this new annual initiative can be made by school-based or private music teachers, drawing on their knowledge of students’ talents and abilities, or students can also apply directly. Applicants will need to submit a video of themselves performing a piece as part of the application.

The winner of the scholarship will be chosen by an assessment panel of music representatives from the region. Applicants will be assessed on their musical talent, skills development potential, learning outcomes and case for financial support.

The successful applicant notified by 16 December 2017.

All musical styles and instruments (including voice) will be considered. Applicants need to live in the south east region (Councils of Bega Valley, Eurobodalla and Snowy Monaro) and be between the ages of 12 to 18 years in 2018 to qualify. A short video or sound recording must be attached or linked to the application.

Incubator is made possible thanks to the generous support of Bettina Richter and Mark Bichard.
