About us

We’re Awards for Young Musicians

For over 20 years, we’ve supported talented young people from low-income families, helping them to overcome financial and social barriers. Whatever the genre, whatever the style, our strategically-targeted programmes help young musicians from across the UK to grow, flourish and fulfil their musical potential.

From funding instruments to lessons, to transport, whilst , expanding their musical networks and giving them opportunities to perform, we do anything and everything we can to give holistic, tailor-made support to young people in need.

We offer bespoke, individual support for each young person’s musical progression. Our programmes not only sustain musical journeys, they also  support others to identify and nurture talent wherever they find it.

In short, at AYM we find potential and give talent a chance.
