Maingot Scholarships

Weekly violin lessons for children on free-school meals

Working in partnership with the Maingot Charitable Trust and Chetham's School of Music, the Maingot Scholarship Programme provides weekly violin lessons and performing opportunities to 10 children from Claremont, St Mary's and St Cuthbert's primary schools.

The 3-year project, which is scheduled to run from 2019-2021, aims to provide children from low-income families weekly violin lessons from a professional violinist from the Royal Northern College of Music, helping children who might otherwise not be able to afford private music lessons the opportunity to explore, and reach, their musical potential. Participation is completely free of charge for all partner schools, children and parents.
