Nicola Benedetti has spoken passionately about the need for better music education in schools, saying “music teaching is vital to a child’s education”.
The Benedetti Foundation has been set up to provide variation, inspiration and enrichment, to the UK’s education system and communities.
They are offering workshops be open to all young musicians and teachers, whatever their background or circumstances, and it is possible to have all of your fees paid for you. They offer financial assistance through bursaries so no one should be prevented from attending a workshop weekend due to financial hardship. Each case is assessed individually and all applications are treated in the strictest confidence. Please indicate on the application form if you will require financial assistance.
