Music scholarships and opportunities

Music scholarships and opportunities

Here at GO! we wanted to be able to offer people opportunities in Music, to help develop their skills, support training that may otherwise be out of reach and for brighter futures in music.

We have been lucky enough to offer 9 scholarship music places since starting the charity, this is set to increase over the coming years where we can help others have opportunities in music.

Alex’s story 

Alex was a work experience student who came and worked with the Charity for a week gaining skills shadowing our senior team in Plymouth. It soon became apparent that Alex had some outstanding talents, working with Plymkids theatre group and taking part in productions, GO! interviewed Alex to see if the charity could support his aspirations. GO! were happy to fund vocal coaching sessions with a vocal professional in Devon and Alex worked really hard. Alex has since landed leading roles in Devon, one as Beast as ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and now being cast in many other productions in Devon.

Alex said “I’d just like to thank everyone for all their support and help, I’m well and truly blessed!”.

What else have we done

Because of the popularity of requests for music training GO! decided to launch music scholarships officially in 2016, and we are delighted to have been to offer music training opportunities on courses such as ‘Unpacking the Voice’.

On this course, we have been exploring the finer details of singing, and helping us to understand our voice and how we use it. It has been a great start, with a collection of adults who are really giving it all they have got on these courses.

We are also very proud to have been able to provide a couple of scholarship places on this course to those from Musical Theatre Group – Plymouth University and performance students from City College Plymouth.

Future Music scholarships

GO! are exciting about its musical support work expanding and are looking to team up with new areas across the UK to provide young people and older people with opportunities in Music training and development.

We have a lot of exciting work happening to help support people gain musical training, and to also encourage people to sing for their wellbeing. If you would like to find out more or find out what might be coming up in your area, get in touch with our team at contact@greatopportunities.org.uk
