|Young Musicians Helped by Elton|
- Star funds scholarships at the Royal Academy
SIR ELTON JOHN is to help the Royal Academy for Music groom young musicians.
John attended the famous music teaching college on a scholarship as a teenager and wants to see others benefit from its expertise. "For quite some time I have tried to find a way to repay my debt to the academy," said John. To start the scheme off, four budding musicians will be handed scholarships ranging from UKP1,000 to UKP10,000.
"It is not just a matter of funding for Elton, he also wants to take a personal interest in the students as individuals," said Peter Craik of the Royal Academy. "Elton wants to follow their progress and give them advice all the way."
