The Patrons' Scheme is dedicated to encouraging music making for all the young people of Bromley.
Our aims are to;
Of course, BYMT will strive to continue the traditional depth and quality of classical music teaching and performance.
We will achieve these aims by funding BYMT projects and initiatives, which normal funding would not allow, and by working with other music services to share the achievements in Bromley.
The excellence of provision of music for young people in Bromley is well known. Through the work of BYMT a significant proportion of the young people in the Borough learn to play and sing and have fun developing their skills in many ensembles suited to all abilities. From the smallest beginnings to performance at an international prize winning level, there are opportunities to participate. But there is much more that we could do. For example, we could provide other kinds of music which would appeal to young people beyond classical music.
BYMT has shown how the provision of music theatre and music technology has drawn in young people who otherwise would not have been involved. We believe satellite centres providing a variety of approaches to music could draw in even more young people, and, introduce them to classical music too. We could also do more for special needs music. In addition, through our alumni association of ex pupils of BYMT we hope to tap into their talent by providing role models for our young people.
