If you’re a musician with a strong track record but lacking the resources to embark on larger and longer-term projects, then our Next Level award might help.

With a programme of one-to-one business advice and peer support, alongside financial support to help you pursue your opportunity, this is designed to help you take your career to the next level.

Who is this for? 

This support is for musicians who create, perform or release their own music but lack the resources to take on ambitious projects.

If you need support to help record and release your next album, take your music on tour, or join a long-term course, we can help make that happen, all whilst providing you with business skills and networks to help you grow your career.

Full eligibility criteria and details of what our panel are looking for can be found in the application guidance.

  • 6 hours of one-to-one business advice from industry experts
  • Online meet-ups with other awardees and industry guests
  • Up to £3,000 towards your own music activity
  • Invites to online peer drop-in spaces with other musicians (optional)
  • Access to a healthy practice session delivered by BAPAM (optional)
