Joy Ingall Scholarship for Music Studies
|Amount$60000||Number Available1||FacultyFaculty of Education and Arts|
|Donor||Mr Norman Bushman|
Joy Ingall (née Davis) 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 with Diploma and Licentiate Certificates. 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 six children and as a result, her musical career receded into the background. However, there were still occasional performances at public gatherings, such as parties and meetings of the Labour party. It was at one such function that she met Norman Bushman who, with his passion for music, 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 fulfill 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.
