The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) has teamed up with Musicman and Bass Guitar Magazine to announce the launch of the 2010 bass scholarships program. The ICMP offers a one year Higher Diploma bass bass course.
The winner will receive a fully funded scholarship, worth £5,250, and the runner-up will receive a partially funded scholarship, worth £2,625. The winner will also have the opportunity to write a regular column for Bass Guitar magazine.
The Higher Diploma course is a full-time course for one year, and the first full-time course of its kind in the UK. Faculty includes Janek Gwizdala, Laurence Cottle and Dave Marks.
The contest runs through March 5th, 2010, and is open to anyone. Download the application from ICMP’s web site.
