Graduation Caps


The Rockland Music Teachers Guild offers two scholarships each year to high-school seniors of outstanding music ability who plan to continue musical studies in college. 

The George Bryant Scholarship, established in 2017, awards $4000 to students who plan to continue as a music major at a University or Conservatory.


The RCMTG Scholarship awards $2000 to students who plan to continue musical studies in college, not as a major.

Scholarship auditions will be held on the same day as the RCMTG Young People's Auditions. Applications are submitted through the Auditions Committee upon request, for no fee. Applicants may only apply to one of these scholarships.



   Auditions Chairperson, Christine Renstrom, announces the 2021 George Bryant Scholarship Winners:


                                                        John Henry Oswald, piano student of Tammy Lum                                                       


Lila Villasenor, violin student of Olga Dusheina


                                        Due to the pandemic we were unable to hold in-person auditions in 2021.

                                        Scholarship applicants submitted video recordings of their auditions.

                                        The judges found both of these students worthy of the George Bryant

                                        scholarship and it was a unanimous decision to share the scholarship 

                                                                                  equally between them.  



Congratulations and Best Wishes to both of these students.
