Joy Ingall Scholarship for Undergraduate Music Studies

Scholarship Details

 Provider Name:  University of Newcastle

 Scholarship Name:  Joy Ingall Scholarship for Undergraduate Music Studies

 Description:  Joy Ingall demonstrated a natural talent for the piano early in her life. Her aptitude and dedication, coupled with her mother’s support, saw her graduate from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Her ability was also recognised by the ABC, who featured her in radio broadcasts. Joy pursed her musical studies in the UK, eventually meeting and marrying her husband there. Returning to Australia, she raised 6 children and as a result, her musical career receded into the background. However, there were still occasional performances at public gatherings. It was at one such function that she met Norman Bushman who recognised her talent and encouraged her to pursue her musical career. As a first step, she began giving lessons and played a key role in nurturing many fine musicians. Sadly, she succumbed to cancer before she could fulfil all her dreams and the hopes of supporters like Mr Bushman. Out of a deep respect for her dedication and musicianship, Norman Bushman took on the support of her family and made a commitment to keeping her memory alive. This scholarship provides tangible evidence of his commitment.
