Trusted relationships

AYM is here thanks to the generosity of our funders and donors.  Your contributions have allowed us to help 3,000 young people so far but we're far from finished.

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 able to reach enough of those young people and to help make a real difference in their lives. This fact alone makes us even more determined to pursue our cause: that no young person with serious musical potential and a strong commitment to learn and grow should ever go unsupported.

AYM is extremely grateful to the many funders who have given generously to us over the years. We would particularly like to thank the following for their recent invaluable support:
