After battling it out with other aspirants, and besting three other finalists, Luke grabs the top spot in this year's competition.

Each of the four finalists were interviewd by a panel of judges that include Institute director Pete Whittard and tutor Tolis Zavaliaris. The finalists then gave a five minute live performance after the interview, of which the judges picked out the top performer.

According to the Institute, Luke Tarrant swayed the judges in his favor with his "stylistic versatility and commitment to his instrument".

Pete Whittard, Operations Director of the Institute, commented: "There was a very high standard of talent showcased today; Luke demonstrated a variety of styles along with a strong technical ability which put him in the forefront of the competition. All finalists were extremely strong candidates, and the diversity of all performances was very impressive."

This scholarship grant is part of The Institute's effort to encourage as wide a range of students as possible to access education regardless of financial, social or cultural circumstances. As an equal access institution, scholarships are just one way of supporting, guiding and assisting deserved students in their studies.

Luke will receive a full scholarship onto the Higher Diploma guitar course starting September worth £5,650 with runner-up Andy Hunt receiving a partial scholarship worth £2, 825.
