Students must also submit a report summary of their experience. Students ranging in age from 8-18 may apply to the program by completing this application form with parental consent, support and oversight.

Once selected into the program, participants may choose to study with instructors at either the Flagstaff School of Music or Arizona Music Pro. (Exceptions may be made with FFOTM approval.) The scholarship funds will be deposited into an account in the student’s name and will be managed by the school of choice. Day, time and length of lessons will be decided by the student and instructor. Upon being notified of acceptance, students and parents may then contact their school of choice and schedule lessons.
