ARi­mon School of Mu­sic grad­u­ate has won a pres­ti­gious schol­ar­ship from Bos­ton’s Berklee Col­lege of Mu­sic.

Berklee stu­dent Noa Bea­z­ley from Tel Aviv was awarded the Berklee BMI Film Scor­ing Schol­ar­ship this week by two-time Emmy Award-win­ning com­poser Trevor Mor­ris. Within her first two years at Berklee, Bea­z­ley’s di­verse skill set earned her ac­co­lades in­clud­ing the Video Game Au­dio Schol­ar­ship for Women, The Rick Ap­plin Award for best fugue, and the Jeron­i­mas Kacin­skas Award for out­stand­ing com­po­si­tion, ac­cord­ing to Berklee.

In her ap­pli­ca­tion let­ter, Bea­z­ley stated that her fu­ture ca­reer plans, “lie en­tirely in the field of film and video game scor­ing,” and that Berklee had pro­vided her with the knowl­edge, skill and pre­lim­i­nary list of con­tacts to help her start on the path of her ca­reer.

The first BMI-spon­sored schol­ar­ship was first pre­sented in 1998 by com­poser Michael Ka­men and it con­tin­ues to be awarded to a stu­dent se­lected by Berklee’s Film Scor­ing Depart­ment. The award is based on the stu­dent’s mu­si­cal abil­ity, fi­nan­cial need and po­ten­tial for ca­reer suc­cess.
