Luke Tarrant: winner of the 2013 Higher Diploma Guitar Scholarship award

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance is delighted to award Luke Tarrant as the winner of the 2013 Higher Diploma Guitar Scholarship award.

Each of the four finalists had an interview with a panel of judges including Institute tutor Tolis Zavaliaris and Pete Whittard, a director at the Institute. The interviews were followed by a five minute live performance with their fellow finalists and guests in the audience.

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

Judge on the day and Operations Director of the Institute, Pete Whittard said:

“There was a very high standard of talent showcased today; Luke demonstrated a variety of styles along with a strong technical ability which put him in the forefront of the competition. All finalists were extremely strong candidates, and the diversity of all performances was very impressive.”

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.

Luke will receive a full scholarship onto the Higher Diploma guitar course starting September worth £5,650 with runner-up Andy Hunt receiving a partial scholarship worth £2, 825.
