Patron Levels 

The Centre for Young Musicians (CYM) relies on support from music lovers who want to help young people continue their music education regardless of their family circumstance. Your generosity also benefits our music tutors, who as freelance musicians and like many others in the Arts world, have been short of work in the past few months owing to the pandemic. If you would simply like to make a donation – any amount is extremely welcome and the Foundation for Young Musicians (FYM) can reclaim Gift Aid (if eligible) making your support worth 25% more to CYM.

All donors will receive a termly e-newsletter about the Saturday Centre and its activities. Alternatively, if you would like to get more involved, we would like to suggest a number of different Patronage levels which you can pay annually or monthly. Regrettably, owing to the pandemic, we are currently unable to offer our Patrons the benefits relating to live concerts, but obviously hope that they will resume in the near future.
