Supporter donations

The arts are not simply ‘nice to have’, or an ‘add-on’ to education. They have the power to change and shape young lives. They provide knowledge, skills and attributes that can play a significant role in young people’s development. Music in-particular can create opportunities for children to express their ideas and form their values, and equipping them to navigate a rapidly changing world.

Funding from central government and Arts Council England is reducing every year and families are finding it harder to find the money to pay for music lessons and workshops.  

Your support can enable us to reach more children from any background, and provide their lifelong learning through music.
  • £15 per month can sponsor a child’s place in a county ensemble.
  • £18 per month would provide free instrumental or vocal tuition for a child.
  • £6 per month would provide free instrument hire for a child.
  • A one off donation of £15 would buy a child’s place on a workshop day​.
