City Hall, London, United Kingdom

Since 2011 we have funded 32 inspirational projects reaching over 9,000 young people.

These ambitious projects range from West End musicals to funk, classical to grime, and give 7-18 year olds the chance to learn from and perform alongside professional musicians in iconic venues.

Read more about projects we have supported here.

Grants are awarded for up to £15,000 per project, and must be led by one London Music Service with at least two other professional partners.

Scholarships

We award four-year music Scholarships to children who have started learning an instrument and are doing really well but whose families find it difficult to pay for music lessons, meaning that without our support they would have to give up their studies. Since 2011 we have awarded 426 Scholarships to young musicians in London.

What does a scholar receive?

  • Weekly instrumental tuition at a suitably challenging level, normally in small groups (2-6 per group) or, in exceptional circumstances, one-to-one
  • Compulsory attendance at a weekly ensemble of a suitably challenging level
  • Regular performance opportunities at school, music service and elsewhere
  • Invitations to attend special projects and go on trips to professional concerts
  • A well maintained instrument which can be taken home
  • A named Mentor who is the liaison between the Scholar and family, music tutor and school

In order to be eligible for an award Scholars should:

  • Be in Year 5 at the latest
  • Attend a junior school in London where there are no school fees
  • Have been learning a musical instrument for a minimum of one year
  • Show potential and commitment to learning, but come from a family where the ongoing cost of tuition would be prohibitive.

Youth Music

9 Tanner Street, London, United Kingdom

Youth Music projects take place in all kinds of places. Youth centres, libraries and prisons. Nurseries, hospitals and housing estates. Sometimes schools (although usually out-of-hours). Often, it’s the fact that they're not school which helps young people to engage.

Several times a year, organisations can apply to us for funding for their music-making projects. Big or small, if they have a great idea for helping young people through music, Youth Music will consider it.

Organisations have to demonstrate the need for their project in their local area. They need to prove they’ve talked to young people to find out what they want. They have to show a fully-costed plan. And most importantly, they need to explain exactly how their project will help change children’s lives.
