Awards for Young Musicians

Giving talent a chance

Trustee: Michael Lewin

AYM’s Founding Trustee

As a hi-fi consultant, one of Michael Lewin’s great pleasures was to show people ways to reproduce music in their homes at a quality-level which they previously had no idea could be attained.  As Operations Director of the UK trade association for specialist hi-fi dealers, he helped members raise standards and provided training courses, as well as working with the press and public to promote the benefits of real hi-fi, and acting as an unofficial industry ombudsman.

Since childhood, music has played an important part in his life; he has sung as an amateur for 40 years.

He is delighted that (his uncle) Bob Lewin’s collection of violins and bows has been used not only to help talented young musicians but also to enhance the opportunities for musical education in the UK.
