Maingot Music Scholarships
Thanks to the generous support of the Maingot Charitable Trust and Chetham's School of Music, Olympias Music are now able to offer scholarships for 18 children from Plymouth Grove, Claremont, St Mary's and St Cuthbert's primary schools to take free weekly violin lessons with a professional musician from the Royal Northern College of Music, beginning in January 2019. All violin tutors receive termly mentoring from Nicholas Jones, Head of Strings at Chetham's, in order to ensure the highest quality of teaching.
Each child is loaned their own violin and receives a 30-minute instrumental lesson and 30-minute musicianship (aural training and theory) class each week (10 lessons per term). At the end of each term, each class performs in a concert at Chetham's School of Music. All of this is free of charge to children and for participating schools.
