Music Scholarships

Students who play musical instruments may audition for talent-based PTSA Music Scholarships, which are awarded by Tenth District PTSA.

Tenth District PTSA also awards scholarships to vocal music students, but only at the high school level. Choral music students who play piano are eligible for instrumental music scholarships.

Music program donations:

  • Friends of Palms and parents have also been generous each year in funding the instrumental music program, which assists in the purchase of new sheet music that expands the musical range to which students are exposed.
  • Direct donations from parents are also welcome, but they are completely optional; the only cost to students is that reed instrument players must pay for their reeds.

How Scholarships Work

French hornScholarships of $200 each are intended to help pay for private music lessons. Funding comes from the Tenth District PTA.

Applications are usually due in March, with auditions in April. The number of scholarships is limited.
