Clyde Johnson Music Scholarship
Clyde Johnson Music Scholarships honor Clyde Johnson, professor emeritus of music, who served UMM from 1961 until 1999. The scholarships are awarded to talented University of Minnesota, Morris music majors to completely cover the fees for one year of weekly private, individual music lessons in the student’s major performance area (instrumental or voice).
The University of Minnesota, Morris will be hosting a Music Scholarship Day on February 21, 2014 for students planning to enter college as music majors. During the event, students will have an on-campus audition with music faculty, have the opportunity to visit a selection of classes and rehearsals, and attend a UMM Jazz Ensemble Concert. Awards will be given based on the music faculty’s evaluation of a student’s audition as well as a brief discussion of musical background and goals. This scholarship is awarded by the Music Discipline.
