The Institute, Ernie Ball and Bass Guitar Magazine
unveil 2013 Bass Guitar Scholarships -
The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, Ernie Ball
Musicman and Bass Guitar Magazine are proud to announce the launch
of the 2013 bass guitar scholarships programme. These sought after
scholarships are for study on the Institute's world-renowned one
year Higher Diploma bass course starting in September 2013. There
will be one fully-funded place for the winner (worth £5,650) with a
partially funded place for the runner-up (worth over £2,800).
The Higher Diploma is a specialist one-year full-time course,
developed by the Institute to train and develop students of guitar,
bass, drums and vocals for a career in the music industry. It was
the first full-time course of its kind ever developed in the UK and
achieving a place on the course continues to be an aspirational
goal for young musicians. The Institute, widely recognised as one
of Europe's leading schools of modern music, counts on an
unrivalled teaching and visiting faculty, many of whom regularly
work and tour with some of the music industry's greatest artists.
This faculty includes such names as Janek Gwizdala, Laurence Cottle
and Dave Marks.
Previous Institute students can be found throughout today's
music industry, working with high profile artists such as
Radiohead, The Vaccines, Jessie J, Kylie Minogue, Reef, The Script
and Paolo Nutini. Previous bass scholarship winners have gone
on to great success, for example Beni Giles who played in Gary Go's
band as the support act for Lady Gaga, playing regularly in front
of crowds of more than 10,000 people.
Closing date for entries is 22nd February 2013 and there is
always a great demand. The scholarships are open to anyone from the
UK or internationally and the application form is available to
This is a fantastic opportunity to win a free place on one of
the most prestigious bass courses in Europe and the winner of the
scholarship will also have the support of Ernie Ball Music Man (www.music-man.com) and an
opportunity to write a regular column in the UK's biggest bass
magazine, Bass Guitar Magazine (www.bassguitarmagazine.com).
