New Friends and Patrons Club – Help Sponsor a Student

New Friends and Patrons Club – Help Sponsor a Student

Among the initiatives in hand to mark the Academy’s tenth anniversary in 2018 is the introduction of a “Kingston Academy Friends and Patrons Club” to help provide funding for scholarships for students interested in studying music but cannot afford the fees involved.

From its earliest days the Academy has supported emerging, talented artists from its own resources. That experience and the awareness of current, unfulfilled demand for assistance, has encouraged the Academy to introduce a formal scholarship scheme for gifted, potential students.

Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor, be it in a corporate or individual context, should contact the Director for further information.

The Choice of Music Industry Professionals

The Choice of Music Industry Professionals

A feature of the Academy’s students is the number of them that are sons or daughters of music industry professionals.

Over the years the Academy has been proud to teach pupils ranging from the children of popular music and entertainment stars to those of leading classical music performers and all genres in between.
