Music Scholarships

Bromsgrove boasts some of the best musical opportunities in Bangkok, with many performance opportunities, strong musical connections, and a wide range of options for music study.

We are looking for able musicians with a strong desire to perform and immerse themselves into the musical life of the school. Above all else, we want to see that you are passionate about music, that you are enthusiastic about performing, and that you are keen to improve yourself as a musician. Scholars are awarded a discount off tuition fees only, ranging from 25% to 75%.

How to Apply

To apply for a scholarship, candidates are first asked to complete an application form and provide a record of achievement, showcasing their successes to date, including examples of performances in the form of YouTube links, CD, Flash Drive, etc.

Applicants are then invited to attend a scholarship audition day for an interview, and to demonstrate their competencies in an audition under timed conditions. Candidates will also be asked to sit the standard entrance tests for their age group.
