Building More Than Musicians!

The Music Academy of Western North Carolina has establsihed a Scholarship Fund for students in need of financial assistance.  Private lesson scholarhip recipiants must fulfill their responsibilities to the Music Academy as well as volunteer a minimum of two hours per month at a local non-profit of their choice as part of their service project obligations.

Ensemble scholarship recipients must also fulfill their responsibilities to the Music Academy as well as perform at various events throughout the year.  The goal of the Music Academy Scholarship Program is to not only train up good musicians but to mold a responsible young adult through character and leadership development while instilling a sense of giving back to ones community through service-related projects.

Some of the Henderson County Non-Profits our students might be interested in volunteering for include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Children & Family Resource Center of Henderson County
  • INTERFAITH Assistance Ministry
  • Hendersonville Rescue Mission
  • Council On Aging of Henderson County
  • Henderson County Humane Society
  • Henderson County Young Leaders Program
  • Team ECCO, Ocean Center & Aquarium

All Music Academy Scholarship recipients must abide by the volunteer requirements of their selected non-profit as part of our Scholarship Program and have a “Volunteer Verification Form” signed by their non-profit volunteer representative for scholarship funding to be released for the upcoming month.
