For those of you who don't know me, I'm a 22 year old viola player based in London, originally from the South West.
I have had an incredible four years at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Here, I have learnt so much valuable information which will be very useful in my later professional life. I have performed all over London, in venues such as Royal Opera House and the Barbican Hall through Guildhall. In my third year, I was given the chance to study in Sweden as part of the Erasmus Mundus Scheme.
Why I'm asking for your help!
I have been incredibly lucky to have been awarded a place and Entrance Scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music to study an MA from September 2016. I still need to raise a significant amount of money to cover the fees, let alone my living expenses! I'm asking for your help to help fund the rest. If you can help in away; big or small, it would be greatly appreciated. Help of course doesn't have to be financial; if you know anyone who might be useful in my quest for funding, please put them in touch! It would be incredibly appreciated to help fund the next stage of my musical journey.
Where will your money go?
Your money will enable me to undergo training of the very highest standard; with eminent musicians and professors. It will help me refine my viola playing and become a much finer musician. I'm also very lucky to have been lent a very fine Benjamin Banks Viola, but I will have to give back if I do not undergo further training. Aside performing, I wish to expand my knowledge of giving msuical workshops to disadvantaged children and adults, further training at the Academy will help me do so.
Thank you for taking the time to visit the page and read why it's so important to me to study further next year!
