Primary Bursary

What is the Primary Bursary?

The following pupils are entitled to apply for a P6 or P7 bursary:

  • Pupils who are in P6
  • Pupils who are near the start of P7
  • Pupils who are at the end of P5

The ACMS P6 and P7 Bursary provides free weekly 30-minute lessons in term time with an ACMS tutor for younger pupils, who, in addition, demonstrate potential and commitment to their chosen instrument. Successful candidates who accept places on the bursary scheme are required to audition formally for ACMS in their P7 year. If the pupil chooses not to audition, the bursary must be paid back to ACMS before the end of the pupil's P7 year.

We are keen to develop good relationships with local young musicians. In addition to our Primary Bursary scheme we welcome young musicians to play with us at any of our "Come and Play Days" and our weekly string ensemble, vocal ensemble, or wind and brass ensemble. Please email us for further information.
