Music for All’s efforts to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences includes awarding a number of scholarships.
Each year, Music for All awards the William D. Revelli Scholarship at the Music for All National Festival. This scholarship honors a graduating senior who plans to pursue a degree in music education. The Revelli Scholarship is awarded in memory of Dr. William D. Revelli, one of America’s foremost band conductors, and the icon for whom the Revelli Foundation was created and named in 1994. The Revelli Scholarship honors Dr. Revelli’s vision for music education.
Last year’s recipient, Kyle Norris from Union High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is attending Oklahoma State University this year.
“I'm so glad that I get to go to school every day and learn how to become the best music teacher I can be so that when I am teaching students someday, I can hopefully affect them in the same positive way my teachers have affected me,” said Norris. Thanks Music for All and the Revelli Scholarship for helping me get here!”
The $1,000 William D. Revelli Scholarship is a one-time scholarship for a graduating senior who is performing at the 2013 Music for Al National Festival and is nominated by his or her director. Recipients must intend to pursue a degree in music education and demonstrate outstanding musicianship, leadership skills and work ethic.

Please share this information with any students (and directors of students) who might be interested in this scholarship opportunity. We know continuing education can be expensive and every little bit helps these students to become amazing music educators!
