The Student Scholar Program is a platform which provides online lessons to instrumentalists who have applied and been selected by the Artistic and Educational Committee. In conjunction with one-on-one lessons with Mentors, students will collaborate with other teaching artists, including the Founder, Samuel Vargas. These complementing activities offer the opportunity to participate in the Online Workshops which function as professional development courses requiring periodic homework and assignments. The education and support provided by the Student Scholar Program aims to fulfill the holistic expectations set by the mission of SVIMF. This is a six-month educational program which is divided into two, three-month plans and goals. Students will complete the program equipped to continue their career as an artist and with resources to find a long-term teacher as applicable.
