Everyone can play a part

At AYM, we believe that talent is everywhere but opportunity isn’t. Family finances and other obstacles too often get in the way.

Having access to music making gives young people a sense of purpose, identity and accomplishment. We don’t think it’s acceptable that many children are denied this opportunity.

With your help, we can change this.

If you believe that nothing should stand in the way of a talented young musician reaching their potential, we’d be delighted if you’d support us.

In order to develop and expand our work we rely on the committed generosity of hundreds of supporters. Will you join them so that more young people have the chance of a musical life?
