The power of partnership
We have always been proud to work in partnership with a wide variety of organisations, large and small, in the UK and internationally. Today we wanted to share a 10-year impact report from the London Music Fund, of which we were one of the founding partners.
“Looking back over the past 10 years of the London Music Fund’s achievements, this year’s Impact Report adds to the ever-increasing body of evidence which supports our belief in the value of music education. We have witnessed first-hand the enormous impact that learning a musical instrument has on children and young people; through our four-year Scholarship programme, our Partnership projects, and most recently, the organisations funded through Amplify London. We believe that a solid musical education is a right, not a privilege, and we will continue to develop our work to enable thousands more young people across London to have access to the benefits of music education.”
ABRSM is delighted to work with the London Music Fund on their annual series Playing Days for Scholars, given our shared belief in the value of high-quality performance opportunities and clear musical progression for young musicians.
Since 2011 we have held a series of workshops for our London Music Fund Scholars; from welcoming them to City Hall at the very start of their award, to celebrating with them as they graduate at the end of the four year programme, and holding a number of inspiring, creative, collaborative Playing Days in between. Scholars have enjoyed playing together at venues such as City Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, King’s Place, Morley College, the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. They always love meeting other Scholars, learning new skills on their instruments, and being inspired by our ambassadors and the amazing ABRSM team of tutors.
