Creative Programme

It’s hard to get started as a musician. Training is time-consuming and expensive and there’s intense competition for those all-important opportunities that open up a career. Every year, we help hundreds of emerging musicians to develop their talent and get the crucial break they need.

Here you can find out about our Creative Programme and you can get up-to-date information about other sources of funding.
