Helping and inspiring talented young musicians

For musically talented young people, one-to-one tuition is the only way to learn a musical instrument. It gives the pupil the degree of attention, supervision and support that is impossible in a group.
The National Youth Arts Trust is working with schools and Local Authority Music Hubs throughout the country to identify young people with talent who are not able to fund individual music lessons themselves.
Funding is provided in the form of bursaries for tuition, instrument hire, notebooks, examinations and travel expenses where required.

Our aspiration is to ensure that no significantly talented pupil is denied the opportunity to develop that talent.
A number of our bursaries are funded by endowments via the ABRSM and donations from The Peter Carr Charitable Trust.

It was with great excitement that they received the news of NYAT's decision to fund their lessons… One pupil is also now pursuing her lifelong ambition to learn how to play the piano and this has also encouraged other Lancasterian pupils to do the same!! Our school is situated in an area of high deprivation in Tottenham, a stone's throw from the site of the 2012 riots. Without the support of NYAT these very talented pupils would not have been able to pursue their notable talent.

Since I can remember I’ve had a passion for music. If I hadn’t had NYAT’s help this year I wouldn’t have been able to carry on with my music. I’m very grateful as it’s very important to me and my future.
