Loyola's Preparatory Arts Program awards new piano scholarships

September 20, 2013

The Preparatory Arts Program at Loyola University New Orleans recently awarded new merit-based scholarships for students currently enrolled in the piano program. The scholarships went to students who received the highest number of combined points at the annual Louisiana Music Teachers Association’s piano rally held in April.

One scholarship for a partial reduction in piano tuition was granted for each of the competition levels. In the case of a tie within a level, the award was divided equally.

2013 scholarship recipients:

  • Prep A, Max Devlin
  • Prep B, Betsy Cao and Sophia Cao (tie)
  • Level I, Emma Freeman
  • Level II, Evangeline Crouch and Isabelle Lam (tie)
  • Level III, Carine Lama

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must participate in their respective levels of all four segments of piano rally, meet the minimum score requirements needed to advance to state finals, and be in good standing in Loyola’s Preparatory Arts Program. Students must also regularly attend and fully participate in private and group instruction as available.

The Loyola Preparatory Arts Program is one of the few comprehensive music programs in the metropolitan New Orleans area, offering a structured program of music studies in piano, ballet, voice, guitar and string instruments with additional areas as needed and available.
