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.
