I’m passing on this information from my terrific and endlessly supportive voice teacher, Eric Michael Gillett, who runs this program. I’ve been a member of the scholarship program for a couple of years now, and it has made a real difference in my singing auditions. If you’re an AEA member and are seeking affordable voice lessons, you really should audition next week!
Auditions Announced for AEA Scholarship Program at Singers Forum
After a brief hiatus, the AEA Scholarship Program at Singers Forum, under the auspices of EMGCollective, which administers the program on behalf of the Singers Forum, has returned to offer scholarships to Actors’ Equity Association members living in the New York City area.
The scholarship, which is a funded endowment, offers subsidized vocal training exclusively to members who apply, audition and are accepted. The subsidy covers almost 50 percent of the voice lesson, including a studio and accompanist. Without regard to age, ethnicity, gender and, for the most part, financial need, the scholarship is offered to qualified applicants to assist them in their quest for successful careers while maintaining the vocal health, strength and flexibility to attain long-term musical goals.
New program members, once accepted, are permanently connected to the scholarship, if they choose. This means a student leaving on tour for a year is welcomed back into the program upon return to the New York City area.
Monday, February 9th from 3:30-7 PM
Thursday, February 12th from 10 AM-6:30 PM
Friday, February 13th from 2 PM-6 PM
Callbacks will be held the week of February 16th
Auditions will be held at
Times Square Arts Center/300 W. 43rd Street, Suite 508
“Being able to study on a regular basis has bolstered my technique as well as my confidence,” said Scott Tucker, a student within the program. “I have been able to work on music and material that would have been difficult to master without the eyes and ears of an amazing teacher, and I’ve been able to set performance goals and meet them.”
