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?

Donate today

If you would like to support AYM's work with a donation of any size you can donate online, by cheque or a bank transfer.

Become a regular donor

Most of our supporters give monthly which allows us to plan our work for the long-term and better support our young musicians. You can join them by becoming an AYM Champion or AYM Angel. You can donate online or by standing order.

Fundraise for us

There are many ways to fundraise for AYM such as hosting concerts, marking a special occasion, remembering a loved one or embarking on sponsored challenges - you’ll raise much needed funds and help spread the word too.Find out more here.

Leave a legacy

After you have looked after those closest to you, a gift in your Will could do amazing things for young musicians.

AYM was founded from Robert Lewin's legacy which has given thousands of young musicians a chance to reach their potential. You can also help talented children continue their musical journey by leaving a legacy and passing on a musical life. Find out more here.

Trusts and Foundations

We are always very happy to talk to charities who have similar objectives to AYM - to support talented young musicians in financial need - to explore the potential of working together more closely and so increasing our impact. Find out more here.

Volunteer

Are you looking for a charity to share your expertise and time? Perhaps you're a musician yourself, perhaps you know someone who has inspired you, perhaps you just want to support the next generation; but whatever your reason to want to help, we're always on the lookout for new volunteers. Find out more here.
