Many musicians develop their gift for playing music way before college. Maybe it starts with a piano lesson in first grade, an infatuation with guitar at 12, or playing a melody on a toy flute at 3. Musicians hear music in their head and it comes through in the instrument they play. Over time, dedicated musicians continue to develop their skills and knowledge of music. And it’s this dedication and love for the art that help push musicians to continue their education. If you wish to study music, don’t let the price tag of a college education stop you from pursuing your dreams. Scholarships for music majors can help cover the costs of tuition, books, room and board, fees, and more. Start with this directory of scholarships for music majors, and apply online.
