Bass Players Wanted!

Dr. Sexton and a 1/4 size bass.AS OF 4/24/2017, TWO OF THE BASS SCHOLARSHIPS HAVE BEEN CLAIMED!  WHO WILL GET THE THIRD SCHOLARSHIP?

We need bass players for all of our groups.  If you have previous experience or if you have never played the bass before, we want to help you become a fantastic bassist!

Bass Scholarships
For the 2017-18 academic year, the MWAA Orchestras will offer three, tuition-free scholarships for students to play the double bass (upright bass).  Students will need to obtain an instrument and all other class supplies, but their orchestra fees will be waived for the entire 2017-18 academic year. Basses can be rented for a very reasonable monthly price (between $50-60 per month to rent) and they come in all different sizes allowing smaller students the opportunity to learn to play. 

In the picture here, I am holding a 1/4 size bass, which is the perfect size for younger students.  Basses also come in 1/2 and 3/4 sizes.  If you need help obtaining an instrument, please contact Dr. Sexton.

Bass Player Scholarships

To apply for a bass scholarship, students must be in fourth grade or higher for the 2017-18 school year. Students (not parents, please) will use the space below to write a paragraph saying why they would like to learn the bass. Scholarships will be reviewed as they are received and students will receive a response within 48 hours of their scholarship submission.
