music changes young people’s lives


The support that FOSYM is able to give to young musicians in the county is significant but this is only thanks to the generosity of individuals either financially or in terms of volunteer time.  

You can support us in several ways:

There are a number of ways you can help us to grow and extend our support of young musicians.  Just £23 per month can provide term-time weekly music lessons for a single student.

We have a team of volunteers who are prepared to help at county music activities in roles such as stewards for concerts, events and workshops, organising raffles and selling refreshments.  These are invaluable roles at any event.

If you wish to volunteer then please contact FOSYM Secretary and Volunteer Co-ordinator:

Please also have a look at our Volunteer Policy for further details on the role, which can be found HERE.

We look forward to hearing from you.


Please spread the word about the work that FOSYM does and the power of music as an educational tool.  So much has been scientifically proven about the benefits of music socially, emotionally and intellectually and yet we still need to get this message through to as many people as possible.
