When I wrote about enrolling Ralph this summer at The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab, I have received many inquiries from readers of this blog and from online friends. I have also received numerous inquiries regarding scholarship. As my connection with The Music School is only confined to my son's enrollment in the school's summer 14K Program, I cannot really provide help in terms of scholarship. The good news is that, somehow, boys and girls aged 8 - 12 years can try out for a full music scholarship under the tutelage of no other than the Maestro, Mr. C, himself!
Musmusikwela 2009 (Eskwelahan ng Musmos sa Musika is a joint project of the Music Museum Group Inc. and The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab. It is a ten-month, three-level music course that will train its recipients in voice and stage performance. The selected scholars will also receive food and transportation allowance from the Music Museum Group. The training will start in June.
The first phase of the program starts with auditions this coming May 10 and May 17 at The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab, Park Avenue, Lower Level, Robinson's Galleria. Application forms are available at The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab, the Music Museum, and Teatrino Greenhills.
There will be recitals at the commencement of each level. Scholars will perform during these recitals. The last recital is when the remaining scholars will be presented to the music industry and to media.
Ryan Cayabyab will conduct the auditions and train the chosen scholars in voice and stage performance during the full training period. Scholars will perform in recitals at each ascending level. At the last recital, the remaining scholars will be presented to the music industry and to media.
I have already filled-up an application for Ralph. Actually, I was persuaded by the other mommies of his classmates in the 14K Program. There's no harm in trying, anyway. Ralph needs to prepare at least two songs for the audition. He will sing a capella as minus-one cds are not needed.
If you know that your child has the musical talent, I say let him or her try out this Sunday. All you need to do is prepare a colored 2x2 picture and secure and application form so that you can be assigned a slot in the auditions.
For more inquiries, you can call Music Museum at 721-0635 and look for Russel or The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab at 637-9840 and look for Lyn.
