The UK charity Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) has released a new video starring euphonium player Daniel Moore as part of a series of 20 films telling the stories of young people from low-income families, whose lives have been transformed by access to music education.

Potential

"Every child deserves the chance to make the most of their potential in life,"Sir Simon Rattle, AYM's first Patron said in support of the initiative.

"The barriers are high if a family is struggling financially and if life is challenging in other ways too. AYM makes a musical life possible for everyone, no matter where they come from, and these films demonstrate the impact that this kind of support can have."

Share stories

Meanwhile, AYM Chairman Philip Jones added: "We spoke to young people ranging from secondary school students to those in their early thirties, all of whom have been financially supported by AYM at one time or another.

Some pursued a career in music, while others chose an entirely different career path. What they have in common is a life enhanced by access to music education. We wanted to share their stories."

Series

Prominent young musicians appearing in the series include Jess Gillam, who became the first saxophonist to reach the final of the BBC Young Musician Competition in 2016, and Jennifer Pike, who won the BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of 12 and now enjoys a career as a highly successful violinist.

Euphonium/trombonist player Sam Wyne will also appear in his own video film later this year.
