Low Brass Fabrizio Scholarship

May 2021


PLEASE NOTE: Because of the holiday weekend, we are extending the application deadline
to Monday, June 7, 2021. 


Dear Music Educator:


I am honored to announce that a $280 tuition scholarship opportunity is now being offered at The Hochstein School for 2021/22 in memory of a Hochstein student, Christopher Thomas Fabrizio-Coonan, by his family and friends.


It is the sponsor's wish to support individual lessons at Hochstein for a 7th or 8th grade trombone or low brass student who excels in their musical activities and who is not already receiving individual lessons. The lesson instructor will be a member of Hochstein’s low brass faculty, whose experience and credentials are described here.


To nominate a student from your school for this scholarship, please fill out the online form below OR download and complete this application and return it to Dr. Margaret Quackenbush, President & Executive Director, (see address below) at Hochstein by June 1, June 7, 2021. While the form requests recent NYSSMA scores and levels, we realize that may not be possible. If there is no available information regarding NYSSMA, please use the comment section to elaborate on the student’s skills. 


We expect to choose a recipient by June 15. Weekly lessons will take place starting September 2021 for a 9-week period. Depending on guidelines in place at that time, the lessons may be offered online rather than in person at our school. We ask that all applicants commit to completing the lessons covered by the scholarship award (9 weeks of study).


We welcome and encourage any student who is not selected to receive the scholarship, but interested in taking lessons, to consider enrolling at Hochstein within our regular offerings. Please note that sliding scale tuition fees are based on family income, and we strive to make it possible for any student to participate, regardless of age, experience, or financial resources.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Quackenbush by e-mail director@hochstein.org. Thank you for your consideration of this opportunity, and for all your efforts on behalf of your students!



Margaret (Peggy) Quackenbush
President & Executive Director
