EMI Music Sound Foundation
The Foundation was established by EMI in 1997 to commemorate the centenary of EMI Records. It is an independent charity which is dedicated to the improvement of music education. Applications can be made for the following: non-specialist schools to fund music education; individual music students in full time education to fund instrument purchase; music teachers to fund training.
The Foundation also funds bursaries for music students through selected colleges and is a major sponsor of performing arts colleges as part of the government's specialist schools scheme.
