Plus one lucky winner will get a free place, worth £5,250, on the Institute´s famous Higher Diploma course starting October 2009, and a runner-up gets a £2,600 award for study on the same programme. Applications are 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.
The closing date for entries is Friday 6th March 2009 and there is always a great demand, so any interested guitarists should apply now by downloading the application form HERE.
