Guitar Institute Offers £5,000 Scholarship!

London's Guitar Institute is giving away a free scholarship worth £5,000.

One of Europe's finest schools of modern music, the Institute has teamed up with TG's sister site Music Radar and Yamaha to give away a free place on its famous Higher Diploma course starting October 2008, AND a runner-up will receive a £2,500 award for study on the same programme!

Applications are being invited from students both from the UK and internationally.

The Higher Diploma is a specialist one-year full-time course, originally developed by the Institute to train and develop students of guitar, bass, drums and vocals for a career in the music industry.

It was the first full-time course of its kind ever developed in the UK and achieving a place on the course continues to be an aspirational goal for young musicians.

Institute alumni can be found throughout today’s music industry, working with artists like Babyshambles, Lemar, Radiohead, Eric Clapton, Keene and KT Tunstall.

This guitar scholarship is part of the annual programme of Institute scholarship awards and represents a fantastic opportunity for deserving students to access world class training and tuition at one of the world’s leading schools of contemporary music.

The closing date for entries is Friday 18th July and there is always a great demand, so any interested guitarists should apply now by downloading the application form at Remember, if you don’t apply, you definitely can't win!
