The Milford Community Band, Delaware’s longest- running community band, gave music scholarships to 16 Milford elementary and middle school musicians totaling over $2,000.

“We’re supporting the next generation of musicians,” said Kay Meade, who chaired the selection committee. “There is a lot of competition for these kid’s time and we’re trying to give them the opportunity to learn music in a one-on-one environment. Early musical training can make or break a musician,” said Meade.

Each scholarship includes eight private lessons at the Milford Music Center where the teacher can focus on the student’s strengths and weaknesses and give them specific exercises to improve their playing. Meade said the support of the people of Milford was overwhelming as over 25 businesses and individuals made 2014 the biggest campaign to date.

“It was a banner year, said Meade. “The people of Milford showed their true colors as huge supporters of the arts.” The MCB has awarded 105 music scholarships since 2007.
