Waltons New School of Music - The Martin A. Walton Memorial Scholarships

The Martin A. Walton Memorial Scholarships

at Waltons New School of Music

'I studied singing at the New School for three years, and I am sending this as a belated thank you for all those years at Waltons. I also wanted to let you know that I am continuing my study of music and singing this year at Trinity College – something I don't think I would have achieved without my years of lessons at Waltons.
   Thank you for the support and encouragement I received, for the opportunities I was given to perform, and most of all for the scholarship I was awarded in 2005 as Young Student of the Year.
   Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to John Mardirosian and everyone at the New School.
Yours, Clare Treacey'
