DMU Music Scholarships

DMU students have the chance to audition for a DMU Music Scholarship. This is open to all undergraduates and postgraduates and the application process is two-stage, involving an audition and interview. Applications for 2020-2021 are now closed, but please feel free to email DMU Music at for information about the programme.

The scholarship programme aims to help you further your skills as a singer/instrumentalist, and provides new opportunities to develop as a well-rounded musician, alongside your studies at university. The programme includes tuition, ensemble playing and performance opportunities.

If you are successful at audition, you will receive one-to-one tuition with one of the finest musicians in the UK, who specialises in your chosen instrument and pathway. You will also be enrolled to one of our ensembles or projects, with opportunities to perform throughout the year including a final public recital in June.

The DMU Orchestra brings together DMU students and staff with local and international amateur and professional musicians. Rather than rehearse weekly, the orchestra meets for an intensive rehearsal schedule in the build up to each concert.
