National Awards for Young Musicians

S6 pupil and percussionist, Ethan Skuodas, is one of 103 exceptional young instrumentalists, across all music genres, who won a 2015 Award from the National Charity Awards for Young Musicians (AYM). Each outstanding young award winner receives financial help ranging from £200 up to £2,000 and they also benefit from individually tailored support, which may comprise mentoring, access to advanced skills workshops with professional musicians, master classes and opportunities to attend rehearsals with orchestras and other musical partners.  Competition for the 2015 Awards was extremely high but after careful deliberation the independent adjudication panel decided to award Ethan with a Robert Lewin Scholarship, named after the man upon whose legacy the charity was founded.  If you are interested in applying applications for awards for this year can be submitted from 1st Oct 2015, details can be found at their website www.a-y-m.org.uk.
