As an organisation we support music education by way of sponsorship of musical institutions and initiatives around the world.
Our support enables hundreds of musicians throughout the globe to develop their skills and fulfil their musical potential.
Music for Youth
Music for Youth is a national music education charity providing free access to performance and audience opportunities for young musicians across the UK.
ABRSM sponsors Music for Youth's regional festivals and the winter Schools’ Prom concerts. These are the ultimate celebration of the UK’s diverse young music-makers and feature high quality performances, original music and unique collaborations.
National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
For almost 70 years, the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain (NYO) has helped Britain’s most committed teenage musicians achieve brilliance in orchestral performance. Through NYO Inspire, NYO now has a bold vision to extend this opportunity to promising teenage musicians nationwide who lack opportunities to progress.
ABRSM has joined forces with NYO as the Major Sponsor of NYO Inspire. Why? Because we are both committed to providing opportunities for dedicated teenage musicians.
National Youth Choirs of Great Britain
The National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (NYCGB) comprises five constituent choirs for young people from primary school age to those leaving University.
ABRSM is one of the two principal supporters of the NYCGB Fellowship Programme, which provides a professional training platform for outstanding young choral musicians to help develop skills in performance, teaching and leadership.
International sponsorship fund
As part of our ongoing work to support and encourage music learning around the world we run an international sponsorship fund that is open to any individual, group or music organisation outside the UK and Ireland engaging in activities that inspire more people to participate in music, music teaching and learning.
Recipients of funding include Chamber Music New Zealand, the Providence Heights Community Band in Jamaica, Kampala Music School in Uganda and We Wah Music in Hong Kong among many others.
