A Music for Grant allowed Olivia to purchase a high quality trombone at a critical time in her musical life – just before conservatoire auditions.
She now has her own professional standard instrument to demonstrate her full capability as a musician. It will also allow her to enter life as a student and professional musician without the worry of renting an instrument.
At quite a pivotal moment in my life, this will allow me to have security in my instrument – which is fantastic. This grant will help me to fully explore the routes I have available to me now at Aldeburgh Young Musicians and will really help me fully explore my musicianship to the highest degree – and auditioning for other fantastic opportunities like National Youth Jazz Collective
Over the past 3 years Music for All has awarded over 270 awards to individuals with limited access or financial funding to music making.
