The Institute

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance is delighted to award Kristian Dick as the winner of the 2013 Higher Diploma Drum Scholarship award.

Each of the five finalists had an interview with a panel of judges including Institute tutor Darren Ashford and the Institute’s Industry Liaison Officer, Giaco Bridgett. The interviews were followed by a five minute live performance with their fellow finalists and guests in the audience.

Kristian impressed the judges with his stylistic versatility and commitment to his instrument.

Judge on the day and head of the Institute’s Hub, Giaco Bridgett said:

“It was remarkable to see such amazing talent which made it difficult for us to make a decision. It’s a privilege to be able to award somebody with the chance to reach their goals, and this course is the perfect opportunity for any aspiring drummer.”

The Institute continues to encourage as wide a range of students as possible to access education regardless of financial, social or cultural circumstances. As an equal access institution, scholarships are just one way of supporting, guiding and assisting deserved students in their studies.

Kristian will receive a full scholarship onto the Higher Diploma drum course starting September worth £5,650 with runner-up Gabrielle King receiving a partial scholarship worth £2, 825.
