Awards for Young Musicians

Giving talent a chance

How we help

Removing barriers, realising potential

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

Awards: funding young talent UK-wide, through annual grants and tailormade help for individual musicians

Innovation and Research: leading new thinking and action on talent development
