Each year, SacJEF awards $500 in private music lessons to students from middle school through high school who want to take their playing to a higher level.
Applications for the 2022-23 season are now open and students can easily apply online at this website, or by mail.
To be eligible for the award, students must have at least one year of experience playing an instrument (or singing); must be enrolled in a school or community music program; and must complete an application and answer a few questions about themselves. A brief letter of recommendation from their band director or private instructor is optional but recommended. Auditions are not required. Deadline to submit application is October 31st, with winners announced in early November.
