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. 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. Your support will directly benefit CYM students and encourage them to continue with their music making.
