Be remembered for something worth remembering

Can you remember how your musical journey started? Perhaps it was when a grandparent sat you beside them at the piano. Or when a teacher saw how you came alive during music lessons. Or maybe when you were given your first guitar and played your first chords.

However you first got involved in music and wherever it’s led you, you can help a talented child start or continue on their musical journey by leaving a gift in your will.

AYM is here to give talent a chance and supports talented young musicians from low income families through their individual musical journey. Now you have the opportunity to gift chances so these young people can reach their musical potential so that the music never stops.

After you have looked after your friends, family and those closest to you, a gift in your will could do amazing things.

"My husband and I were keen to ensure that when we no longer need it any more, some of our money is used to benefit charities that we have supported throughout our lives. We think the work that AYM does with young people is fabulous. We love that they enable children from all backgrounds to develop their musical skills. We found it very easy to add AYM to our Wills. We did it via a meeting with our solicitor. It’s nice to know we have that box ticked now!"

If you are making a Will for the first time we’d recommend that you get in touch with a solicitor to talk about your options. If you would like to amend your Will to include a gift to AYM you should also get in touch with your solicitor. We’re not able to advise you on how to specifically create a legacy but will let you know about developments in our work and how your gift will be used to give talent a chance.

If you would like to have a chat about leaving a legacy to AYM and what your gift could have the potential to do please do get in touch. AYM was founded by a legacy from Robert Lewin. That same legacy has inspired and given thousands of young musicians a chance to reach their potential. It would be great to meet you and talk to you about how your legacy could do the same.
