Christchurch School of Music


Every year the CSM offers a number of scholarships in conjunction with the Christchurch School of Music Support Trust.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of an audition and/ or on the statement by the student’s HOD/conductor in which the student’s attitude, attendance and contribution to the School are assessed.  Auditions will be held in a supportive, low key environment to ensure that students are able to perform to the best of their ability.  Every attempt will be made to ensure that the audition process is an enjoyable experience.

Applications for 2018-19 scholarships close on Monday 29 October and auditions will be held on Saturday 3 November between 1pm-5pm
