In an effort to create sustainability for the future of Marchand Youth Orchestra and music programmes like it, The Saint Lucia School of Music has offered a full tuition scholarship to deserving students, sponsored by ECFH. Four Students from the Marchand Youth Orchestra programme are beneficiaries of this exciting ECFH Mentor Programme.
Beneficiaries of this scholarship receive private lessons on their respective instruments, theory classes, advanced ensemble skills at the Saint Lucia School of Music, and an opportunity to complete the ABRSM exams, a certified music exam of the Royal Schools of Music. In addition to students' personal development, students mentor beginner students in the Marchand Youth Orchestra programme.
The ECFH Mentor Scholarship Programme is proving to be a success as students are vastly improving their musical knowledge and skills rapidly and have been instrumental in assisting at the Marchand Youth Orchestra rehearsals.
