Organ Scholar - Crows Nest Uniting Church


In late 2019, we established an organ scholarship at Crows Nest Uniting Church, Sydney. Covid temporarily put an end to our search for a suitable candidate. However, now that church services – and organ lessons – seem to have returned to normal, we are readvertising the Scholarship.

The scholarship is the Sandow Organ Scholarship. It is open to all organ students who have reached equivalent to 5th grade or higher AMEB qualifications in piano or organ.

Key details are:

  1. Purpose: to encourage organ students to excel in the study and performance of organ music, particularly (but not exclusively) the use of the organ as an accompaniment to church worship services.
  2. Prerequisite: equivalent to 5th grade or higher AMEB qualifications in piano or organ. Preference may be given to applicants who particularly need financial help to finance their music studies.
  3. Value: up to $3000 per year.
  4. Duration: probationary period of 3 months, then on a yearly basis, up to maximum of 3 years.
  5. Obligations of Scholar:
    1. demonstrate continuing progress in organ studies;
    2. work with the minister and organist at Crows Nest Uniting Church;
    3. when sufficiently advanced, occasionally play in church services (and, if the student wishes, for occasional weddings and funerals).
  6. Crows Nest Uniting Church organ is a 2-manual, tracker action, 15-rank organ, about 100 years old.  It is regularly tuned and maintained. The Scholar will have access to the organ for practice purposes.
  7. Closing date for applications: 30 June 2021.


How to apply: Please email details to me by 30 June 2021.  There is no set form of application. However, the application should set out, briefly, your details and it may include a statement as to how you see yourself benefiting from the Scholarship. The decision will be made by a committee established under the terms of the Scholarship. The committee may wish to interview a short list of applicants.
