The Berglund Family Scholarship benefits students interested in pursuing private piano lessons at the Prindle School in Hadley, MA. The recipient receives half-hour weekly private piano lessons on an early twentieth century Hazelton medium grand piano on loan from the Berglund family. Preference is given to students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to study music and who demonstrate significant interest in learning to play the piano.
Scholarship recipients must be between the ages of 7 and 18 and have not yet graduated from high school. Recipients must be residents of Hadley, Amherst, Granby, South Hadley, or Sunderland. Preference is given to individuals and families who would not otherwise be able to afford private music instruction. Recipients must commit to a 30-minute weekly private piano lesson held at the same time each week, scheduled at the convenience of the student and the teacher. 90% attendance is required to maintain the scholarship.

If you are awarded the Berglund Family scholarship, the pricing above will be waived completely. You agree to attend all lessons on a weekly basis (with the exception of the holidays indicated at the calendar link above). You also acknowledge that 90% attendance is required to maintain the scholarship.
If you are awarded the scholarship, we will contact you to set up a regular day and time for your lessons. At that point, you will be emailed a confirmed start date and time for lessons. If you accept, you are committing to all of the remaining lessons in the current session at the time that you have confirmed.
At the end of each session, you will be invited via email to register for the following session. If the scholarship is still available, it is possible that you will be awarded the scholarship for an additional session. You may reply to that email to confirm your registration, which will constitute renewal of the scholarship. You agree to familiarize yourself with the calendar for the new session by reviewing the calendar page at the URL given above.
