Removing obstacles, realising potential

Each of our programmes is built around two key aims: removing the financial barriers and other obstacles that prevent young people getting into music, and helping realise their potential once they’re on their way. We’re here to give the best help and support possible, inspiring them to not only succeed, but excel.

Our four main programme areas are:


Identifying Talent

Training teachers how to spot and nurture young people’s musical potential

Furthering Talent

Furthering Talent

Targeting and sustaining young people’s emerging talent through individual support


Awards Programme

Funding young talent UK-wide, through annual grants and tailor made help for individual musicians


Innovation and Research

In our independent role in the music education sector: leading new thinking and action on talent development

Funding for young musicians
