Welcome to the MK Guitar School Scholarship Programme
MK Guitar School was created with a simple goal - to bring music to all. We believe that learning to create and play music helps people find balance, happiness and offsets the stress that comes from everyday life.
We have set aside the traditional formulaic methods and instead embrace a student centric approach to teaching. We start every new relationship with one simple question: What do you want to play? By mapping out personalised learning journeys for every student, we can ensure that they take away something from every lesson that motivates them, challenges them and more importantly, makes them smile.
The MK Guitar School Scholarship Programme aims to take music to those who need it most. In short, anyone who wants to create music but faces obstacles stopping them doing so.
The programme offers selected students the chance to learn to play the guitar completely free of charge. We will supply an instrument, all the accessories you need and of course the ongoing tuition to make sure that you can achieve your musical ambitions.
We are able to do this thanks to the ongoing support of our sponsors who believe, as we do, that music really can make a difference. Currently, we are able to offer scholarships to six new students per year.
