Applications for 2022 Music scholarships are now closed
Melbourne Girls Grammar believes in the power of music and the important role it plays in school life. It contributes to the broader fabric of society and the development of cultural understanding. Our programs offer solo and ensemble performance opportunities. We host concerts, soirees, school productions and special events each year that enable our young performers the chance to develop skills and engage in collaborative stage performances. Individual talents are cultivated, and we have seen many fine performers develop during their time at Melbourne Girls Grammar.
Music scholarships support the development of outstanding performance skills on any brass, woodwind, string or keyboard instrument and are available to students entering Year 7 and Year 9.
