Awards for Young Musicians

The closing date for ‘Awards for Young Musicians’ 2017 (AYM) is fast approaching. They’re offering over £100,000 worth of grants in 2017 to ensure all young people who are eligible know about how to apply and the benefits this opportunity can bring.

The programme is open to young instrumentalists aged 5-17, all genres are welcomed.

The grant supports a variety of musical costs including instrumental purchase/hire, instrumental tuition, music service or junior conservatoire fees, travel for musical activities, software and much more!

‘Awards for Young Musicians’ work with an independent adjudication panel of music education experts who review every application. The adjudication process will take place across March and April and the Awards will be announced in May 2017 where the grants can be claimed shortly afterwards.

But money to support musical progression isn’t the only incentive the Awards programme can offer. In 2016, they were able to offer more than 100 opportunities to over 180 young musicians, including but not limited to: free tickets to concerts, opportunities to observe professional rehearsals and studio production masterclasses.
