The Carolyn Greenleaf Memorial Award is a merit-based award providing a semester of private instruction at the Community Music School. Originally established in 2007, the award honors the memory of Carolyn Greenleaf, a resident of Essex who was passionate about music education. Carolyn worked tirelessly to promote music and music instruction in our communities. To ensure Carolyn’s legacy, the Carolyn Greenleaf Memorial Award Committee partnered with the Community Foundation of Middlesex County to establish the Carolyn Greenleaf Memorial Fund.

The Carolyn Greenleaf Memorial Music Award is open to students of Middlesex County and the Lymes and is awarded each semester. It is entirely based on merit, and is the only such instructional award at the Community Music School. The deadline for applications for the Fall semester will be announced in July. The application may be downloaded from the websites of the Community Music School as well as the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.
