Valentine Alcock Scholarship - FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS

Do you know a young person from a disadvantaged background who might benefit from intensive instrumental tuition?

Valentine Alcock was a talented young mixed-race clarinettist and saxophonist from a single-parent household who died tragically in 1974. In his memory, close members of his family established a fund to allow others to follow in his musical footsteps. We aim:

To provide financial support up to 100% of fees to enable young people of limited financial means to learn to play a musical instrument through attendance in practical courses, workshops or masterclasses especially those involving residential attendance.

In recent years, we have provided funding for the following individuals and courses:

  • Swansea: £240 for two siblings (parents on income support) to attend LA orchestra summer course
  • Axminster: £245 (of £500 cost) for 16 yr old (retired parents) to attend National Youth Brass Band course
  • Mitcham: £250 (of £495 cost) for 17 yr old (single parent family) to attend Hindhead Centre course
  • Wells: £770 for 13 yr old (single parent family) to attend MusicWorks summer course
  • Rye: £250 for 17 yr old (single parent family) to attend county youth orchestra winter course
  • Ipswich: £250 (of £540) for 14 yr old (low income family) to attend Purcell School percussion course

We are a small, family-run charity. Each year we focus our publicity on particular regions; for 2018 we are focusing on the North West and East Midlands regions.
