How we help

Each of our programmes is built around two key aims: removing the financial and access barriers 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.

We work across four programme areas:


Identifying Talent

Training teachers how to spot young people’s musical potential


Furthering Talent

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


Annual Awards

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


Innovation and Research

Leading new thinking and action on talent development
