Congrats to the Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarship Winners!


Congratulations to Jamontah Dupree, Julia Pearce, Cole Hickman and John Berardi for receiving Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarships!

About the winners:

Jamontah, age 15, hopes to be a professional musician one day. His interest in music began when he received his first drum set at the age of three. With his scholarship, Jamontah will attend Bold Music Summer Camp, where he is excited to continue developing his talent as a guitar player.

Julia, age 14, has been playing the trumpet for five years. "I think making music with others is a huge gift and that through music we elevate one another to transcend all the truly tough stuff in life," she says, "My trumpet is an extension of my voice and I want to make the world a better place through pursuing music."
With her her scholarship, Julia will attend JazzArts Summer Music Camp, where she looks forward to furthering her experience in playing Jazz and growing her musical education as a trumpet player.

Cole, age 13, initially found his love of music one year ago through the soundtrack of a video game. He was drawn to the piano in the songs and eventually started researching music by classical composers. Wanting to take his interest in music a step further, he started taking lessons with Bold Music. With his scholarship, Cole will attend Bold Music Summer Camp, where he is excited to meet other kids who love music as much as he does.

John is a 9-year-old guitar enthusiast. He has participated in his church's children's choir for three years and this year he stepped out of his comfort zone to have a large role in the 3rd grade musical. Recently, John hosted a mini concert at the assisted living community where his mother is the chaplain. He led singalongs with the residents and the concert ended in "much applause and great joy. With his scholarship, John will be attending music therapy sessions that offer him musical education and help him better express himself.
