Awards for Young Musicians

Giving talent a chance

AYM Angels

“I became an AYM Angel because these young musicians that AYM is identifying deserve the chance to get on further with their musical studies right now, and not when it’s too late.”

Join our host of Angels

AYM Champions, Angels and Guardian Angels are generous and committed donors who contribute monthyl/annually to our ongoing Ambition 1000 campaign; this is to help us reach our important goal of supporting 1,000 young musicians, across our Awards and Furthering Talent programmes, by our 20th anniversary in 2018.  Please consider supporting AYM by becoming:

An AYM Angel: donations to the value of £1,000 per annum or more
An AYM Guardian Angel: donations to the value of £5,000 per annum or more.

Meet our AYM Angels and Guardian Angels

Thanking You

By way of thanking you for your support, we offer supporters opportunities throughout the year which may include invitations to attend special events featuring AYM young musicians in concert.  For a taste of what we offer read about some of our recent events:


Why we need your regular support

Your regular donation is vital to us and we want to make sure that you can really see the difference your contribution makes. With your support, we can match young musicians’ ambitious goals and help them to meet their highest aspirations; without your support – we can’t do very much at all.

Spread the word

Please do tell your friends, families and colleagues about becoming an AYM Champion, Angel or Guadian Angel and invite them to join you at an AYM musical event.
