The University of Lethbridge Conservatory of Music support Lethbridge and area middle school bands by organizing instrument-specific clinics in their schools, to give bands a literal headstart on their school year! New this Fall, 2018, we are also offering bursaries for talented young band students who want to take private lessons at the Conservatory to further enhance their skills on their instrument. The bursary is based on financial need, in combination with demonstrated commitment or interest in furtherng their musical skills. Even if the Conservatory did not organize the headstart, as long as the student participated in aheadstart in September, 2018, that student is eligible to apply! Deadline to apply is September 30, and bursaries will be awarded by October 10, 2018. Each bursary awarded will be $200 and must be used toward private lessons at the Conservatory, before April 30, 2019.
