NYMF Quick Study Scholarship Sponsored by Leading Note Music

Leading Note Music sponsors an annual $50 scholarship at the North York Music Festival (NYMF) for the Best Quick Study across all levels.  In addition to this money, the Leading Note Music Book Recycling Program proceeds added another $34 to the total amount to be awarded. 

With a quick study, a student is given 24-72 hours to learn a new piece of music and then perform it.  A quick study tests sight reading skill, knowledge of musical terms and meanings, technique, artistry, and finally how quickly a piece of music can be learned. This quick study class is very important to me because it evaluates the skills that are required to play new music. These are skills that I hope all students have after they complete their music studies so that they can go on to enjoy playing music for themselves throughout their entire lives.  

The winner will be announced at the NYMF Gala Concert and Awards Ceremony on June 2nd at  2 p.m. at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church.
