Awards for Young Musicians

Giving talent a chance

Trustee (Chair): Philip Jones

Chair of the Board of Trustees

Growing up in the 60s and 70s in a family of limited financial means, I was very lucky to live in a town where children were able to learn to play musical instruments free of charge;  music became a big part of my daily life, both in and outside school. It was more than just being able to play: music gave me an essential leg-up in the world, leading circuitously to a career in management consulting and latterly in property development.

Sadly most of that state support is now gone, but within the limited resources we have, AYM can still make that essential difference for those we can reach.
