Continuing Ben's legacy of benevolence, intelligence and talent.

If you have been accepted to a drum, music or related program at a post-secondary institution, you may receive a $1,000 scholarship.

We were devastated by the loss of our 17-year-old son Ben last year. Many people have comforted us with stories of Ben's kindness to them and we wanted to continue his legacy with a scholarship fund to help students pursuing post-secondary education in Ben's favourite subjects. Ben's interests were many and varied. He was a very talented drummer, a skilled hockey player and a gifted writer so we have decided to grant the scholarships in these subjects.

Drumming and Music

Ben discovered his love of drumming when he was very small and we would play Rock Band as a family. I can still picture his tiny little foot on that kick drum pedal and how Ben was playing at expert level when I was struggling with medium. We bought him a small electric drumming pad but before long he was moving up to a full sized kit. Ben also had very eclectic taste in music which was influenced by his Dad and Max as well as me and current trends with his own fun picks thrown in. He would listen to anything from Tragically Hip and Big Wreck to Earth, Wind & Fire's September and Led Zeppelin to Elton John's Tiny Dancer.

To apply, please email a description of your music experience, a link to your youtube audition of no more than 3 minutes and a letter of recommendation from your music instructor to bensandisonscholarship@gmail.com.
