LAMA Announces Ziggy Marley Artist Scholarship

LAMA College for Music Professionals (LAMA) President Tom Aylesbury today announced a new Ziggy Marley Artist Scholarship to be awarded annually to the most deserving applicant for LAMA’s music degree programs. In addition, the music college will host five-time Grammy and newly-awarded Emmy winner Ziggy Marley and Grammy-winning producer Native Wayne Jobson on August 21 at 8pm (PT) for LAMA’s new #LetsTalkMusic series: a private invite-only event hosted every quarter for students, alumni and associates. Jobson will interview Marley, a musician, actor, artist, activist and humanitarian, about his history in the music industry, journey as an artist, and aspirations to affect change with his music.

“It is a great honor for LAMA to offer our incoming students such a prestigious scholarship in Ziggy Marley’s name,” says Alyesbury. “It is fitting that Marley, joined by Jobson, will be our guest for LAMA’s inaugural #LetsTalkMusic series. Both are extremely successful and passionate about music, and will provide an invaluable learning experience for our students and alumni.”

LAMA’s scholarships also include the coveted Charles T. Aylesbury Memorial Scholarship, Al Jarreau Scholarship, as well as each department’s “outstanding” performance scholarships.
