Aims and Purpose of the Scholarship:

This Church Music Scholarship, awarded by Kilgeever Parish, is intended to encourage and support liturgical music within the parish community. It will provide an opportunity for a local musician, with a genuine interest in contributing to the Parish, to develop her/his abilities in piano and organ playing, accompanying and liturgical music.

The successful applicant will receive piano tuition at Louisburgh Music School from September 2021 to June 2022 (individual lessons in piano technique, repertoire and sight- reading), as well as an introduction to organ-playing at St Patrick’s Church, Louisburgh (to include organ technique, pedal-playing and registration). Tuition will also be provided in accompanying skills, along with guidance on the role of church music in the liturgy, in a parish context.
