Students are to provide a portfolio including copies of recent school reports and any other documentation that is relevant in promoting the music scholarship application. Students should be able to demonstrate a minimum performance standard of Grade 4 AMEB (or equivalent) on their first instrument.

A scholarship can provide up to 50% remission of tuition fees as set by the College Board and is applicable for the duration of the student’s schooling until the completion of Year 12 providing that the student continues to be engaged in the Music Program both through the curriculum and her co-curricular activities. An additional 100% remission of music tuition fees for the nominated instrument is awarded for 30-minute music lessons taken at the College.
- A performance of two contrasting pieces totalling a maximum of 6 minutes. At least one piece should be performed with an accompaniment which can be live or recorded. Students requiring an accompanist are required to provide their own.
