At BYMT, we believe that all children in the London Borough of Bromley deserve the very best music tuition, regardless of their financial circumstances.
The Young Musicians' Fund (YMF) enables children to participate in all BYMT activities, either at a subsidised rate, or free of charge if they meet the eligibility criteria. We typically have 200 children benefitting from this scheme.
You can make a one-off gift or give regularly. If you would like to set up a Standing Order to donate monthly or annually, and/or Gift Aid your donation, which increases its value by 25% at no cost to you by enabling us to reclaim the tax please click here

The benefits of music making are well documented, from building confidence and emotional wellbeing to improving academic progress. My mission, as Principal, is to provide these fantastic opportunities to more young people. We are continually fundraising to meet the costs of the Young Musicians' Fund. Your gift, whatever its size, will make a difference.
Principal, Bromley Youth Music Trust
All sorts of people are supporting the YMF: alumni, parents, grandparents, and supporters of music education.
Brian Reading, BYMT Patron & Adult Choir member:
"The arts and music must not become educational optional extras for students, with access denied by family financial circumstances. Involvement with music has given me so much; BYMT's Young Musicians' Fund enables me to give something back for today's aspiring young musicians."
Kaewkao & Volker Duenger, parents of BYMT students:
"All children should know the joy of making music as well as the beauty of sharing it with others. BYMT and the Young Musicians' Fund gives all children this chance."
Andy Barclay, BYMT alumnus and currently Principal Percussionist at the London Philharmonic Orchestra:
"Music is a lifelong source of enjoyment - whether you go into the profession or not. Every child should have a chance to benefit from that, whatever their home situation."
