Awards for Young Musicians

Giving talent a chance

AYM Angels

An AYM Angel is someone who goes above and beyond in their support, with an annual donation of £1,000 or more.


“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.”


Every year we support over 300 young people from low income families to pursue their musical talent and we couldn’t do this without our Angels who believe as strongly as we do in helping young people achieve their potential.

We know from our work that the UK is bursting with musical talent and yet we’ve only been able to support a small fraction of this incredible potential. Simply put, we’re not yet able to reach enough of those young people and to help make a real difference in their lives.

If you have the means, please consider becoming an AYM Angel and help us achieve our ambition to support 1,000 young people each and every year.
