Release the Music is a Charitable Trust helping students achieve musical success and is a charity independent of Mrs A’s Music School. Three trustees manage the applications and fundraising.
A musical education often involves learning more than one instrument, purchasing music and instruments, preparing for concerts and passing exams. Scholarships help students already contributing significant time and money.
- To encourage participation, training opportunities and excellence in music.
- To prioritise music lessons for people facing hardship, specific learning, mental health challenges or other disabilities.
- To award scholarships to individuals or groups to assist with music tuition, examinations, competitions, access musical instruments or other materials required to achieve their musical goals.
- To support and upskill music teachers in technology or music therapy for the benefit of others within the community.
- To assist people living in isolated areas who may not have access to music tuition or performance opportunities.
- To inspire and help people reach their full potential as musicians.
