Scholarship Competition

The Palm Beach County Music Teachers Association, wishing to motivate excellence in performance, holds an annual Scholarship Competition. The competition is designed to encourage integrity, beauty and confidence in performance.


To be eligible to compete, the student must be studying with their private teacher, a PBCMTA member, for a minimum of six (6) months. Scholarship applications must be postmarked three (3) weeks prior to the event date or submitted online by the deadline.




All winners are expected to perform in the annual Honors Recital, where awards will be presented. Accompanist fees, if required, for both the competition and Honors Recital will be the responsibility of the student or their teacher. 


PBCMTA scholarship fund is available each year to Piano, Voice, Classical Guitar, Wind, and String students in Elementary, Intermediate and Senior categories. Any PBCMTA member may enter up to three (3) students in the Scholarship Competition per year.


The application fee is $25 per student for all categories.
