The Rockit Live Foundation’s Scholarship Program offers complementary private lessons in conjunction with band sessions taught by professional music instructors. We believe that every young child should have the opportunity to experience the impact music has in life. Music has the power to build academic and social skills, unleash creativity, and develop self-confidence and self-esteem. Music touches the mind, the heart, and the senses. Students are given the opportunity to participate in multiple shows at the Count Basie Center for the Arts throughout the year as well as additional benefit concerts and charitable events. One on one instruction supplemented with immersive band training assists in facilitating our students to build confidence and talent that will last a lifetime.
The Scholarship Program runs year-round and includes the same audition requirements, private lessons, band rehearsal, and performance opportunities as the tuition based Rockit program. The Academy participates in fundraisers, charities, and other outside events to raise money that supports the expansion and growth of the Scholarship Program. All scholarships will be awarded for the term of one year with the option to reapply. Students will be reevaluated quarterly at the end of each term. The Rockit Academy is proud to accommodate young musicians in the area and give them the full Rockit experience at little to no cost!
