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!

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.
