We’re delighted to announce that SoundStorm has been chosen as one of five new Music Education Hub partners by the UK charity Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) for its ‘Furthering Talent’ programme. The news was announced in April by AYM. We’ll join the Music Education Hubs for Liverpool, Lewisham, Sunderland, and Worcestershire. Together with AYM and Youth Music, we will begin delivering AYM’s Furthering Talent programme from January 2021.
Furthering Talent supports the musical learning of young people living in challenging circumstances. Participants who would otherwise struggle to continue their instrumental learning (when their whole class lessons end at school) will receive funding and other support, including weekly instrumental tuition for a minimum of two years. Their parents/carers and teachers are also supported in a variety of ways.
