"Music Instructor Referral Form" is found on our Apply page. Scholarship considerations close March 31st or when the funds are depleted, whichever occurs first.

Scholarship Instructions:

Sending in a performance, attending an audition site, or receiving a scholarship offer DOES NOT SECURE a place for you at Camp, you need to APPLY thru the application process to secure a space in your performance area for camp.

We have a limited amount of scholarship money to distribute to individuals who want to participate in the process. Scholarships are awarded and reviewed until March 31st, or when funds are depleted, which ever occurs first. Our average range is of $125-$425.

  • If you attended Cannon Music Camp this past summer, you will be offered a scholarship based on your placement at camp.
  • If you were offered a scholarship in the last few years, but were unable to attend camp, we will review that offer. E-mail our camp office for more information.
  • All others, you have two choices: 1. send in a recording  2. attend an all state audition site & perform to our school represenative.

If you receive multiple scholarship offers from Cannon Music Camp, we only use ONE OFFER, so please request to use the highest amount. You cannot combine Cannon Music Camp offers to make a larger scholarship.   

Recording Performance:

For instrumentalists and pianists, pieces that are used for All-District, All-Region, or All-State auditions or Solo and Ensemble festivals would be fine when sending to Cannon Music Camp in the link or CD  (see right for instructions). The piece should not be long, you can record it as a video or audio by using your phone recording device or other devices.

For vocalists, solo pieces usually work better than singing a part from a choral piece. Pieces that would be appropriate for Solo and Ensemble festivals would be fine. Any classical solo would be appropriate; pop or Broadway pieces are not appropriate. 

*Percussionists, Pianists and Vocalists should send in their performance (see right for instructions) and NOT attend All State Audition opportunities, these venues do not have Drum Sets or Pianos for their use.

Audition Sites:

If you are performing in North Carolina All State Competitions from the following districts, NW & SW All District Band, Eastern & Western Orchestra, we should receive your placement and depending on that placement, we may offer you a scholarship. This may take to mid February to award. The awards will be mailed to your school music director. It is best to apply and then await your scholarship offer since performance spaces fill up. See cancellation information on the Application Process tab.

To speed up the process and to ensure a scholarship offer, we offer you a chance to perform to our School Representative at one of the All State Audition Sites. Please bring your instrument, the name of your piece, your contact information or parent/guardian contact information. You do not have to perform at the All State Competions to audition for our School Representative, all are welcome.

For Instrumentalists, pieces that are used for All-District, All-Region, or All-State auditions or Solo and Ensemble festivals would be fine to perform for our School Representative. They will be listening to your tone, intonation, technique, musicality, range & scales.

*Percussionists, Pianists and Vocalists should send in their performance (see right for instructions) and NOT attend All State Audition opportunities, these venues do not have Drum Sets or Pianos for their use.

If you are looking for Specific Audition Literature and other specific suggestions of the kinds of pieces and scales you should prepare for your Cannon Music Camp Scholarship audition that is in person, this can be found in the Ensemble Auditions section.

If you did not place this year or are unsure if we receive your placement from your performance in All State Competitions, please contact our office. I can look back a few years to get your placement, or you can get your music director to let me know! We calculate offers based on your chair placement, instrument and grade.  

If you receive multiple scholarship offers from Cannon Music, we only use ONE OFFER, so please request to use the higher amount. All scholarship offers close March 31st or when funds are depleted, whichever occurs first.

Q. If my child is applying to another summer event, and we won't know if they are accepted until after the Cannon scholarship offer expires, what should we do?
A. You should apply to secure your space and scholarship offer. If you must withdraw your application and it is getting close to the cancellation deadline of April 14th to receive your application deposit of $100 refunded, e-mail us and we can review what we can do to honor the refund.
