Music:Link Bursary Scheme has now completed its nineth year and
we have been able to award bursaries to 32 young musicians totalling
over £16,000. We believe that it is important for us all to encourage
and support young musicians so that the continued perfomance of
LIVE music is assured.
for awards have come from a wide variety of disciplines and we have provided bursaries
for a ’Cellist,
Cornet Players, Euphonium Players, Flautists, a Harpist, a Guitar
Player, Organists, Percussionist, Pianists, Saxophonists, Singers,
Trumpeter, Trombonists and Violinists. We received many more applications
and, had we had more funds available, we would have been able to
give financial support to more young musicians.
value of the awards to these young musicians are summed up in their
“Words could not possibly describe the
unforgettable experiences I had on my week at EYSM, I could easily
describe the week at Haileybury as the most sensational week of

remember for a long time!”
could never have imagined that such a huge transformation could
take place in so many people in such a short period of time.”

prepared me for the incredible opportunities I would experience.”
“The knowledge I have gained will last me throughout my musical
you for your generosity that enabled me to attend the English Schools
Orchestra course … I got so much out of the experience.”
"Being given the opportunity to attend
the Musicale summer school in Harpenden opened up a whole lot of
opportunities for me. Not only did I experience playing in a Wind
Band (which I had not done before) but I was surrounded by fellow
musicians who share the same passion for music as me. By Music:Link's
giving me the chance to attend this programme, I was also given
the confidence to believe that if I worked hard enough, I could
achieve almost anything I want to.
Music:Link aspires to turn young people with musical talent into
excellent young musicians who discover themselves through music
and influence those around them. Without Music:Link, I would not
have had the belief to take some of the opportunities I have been
given and not only work in them, but push myself to my absolute
limit to excel in them with my full potential. Without Music:Link
I wouldn't be where I am today; about to start my second year at
Wells Cathedral School as a specialist musician (trumpet) on an
MDS Scholarship scheme run by the government.
Music:Link not only gives people the chance to make their dreams
a reality, but also gives them the inspiration to develop a genuine
love for music and a footpath to continue to work in order to have
a future career in it."
