Please help us raise £25,000 to establish the Steve Martland Bursary Fund  and provide talented young composers from low income backgrounds with a life-changing opportunity.

Your donation, however small, will make a huge difference and it will go directly towards assisting young people in difficult financial circumstances to attend this transformational course.

Over £9,000 has already been pledged, thanks to an exceptionally generous donation from Sally Groves made in memory of her husband, Dennis Marks. We are looking for others to join Sally and Sound and Music in making this a reality. Will you join us?

  • The actual cost per pupil of attendance at the Summer School is £1,200, and the fee to parents is £450
  • A donation of £225 creates a 50% bursary for one young composer for one year
  • A donation of £450 creates a full bursary for one young composer for one year
  • A fund of £25,000 means that we can ensure that there is never a financial barrier to attendance at the Summer School, now and in the future

Yes, I would like Sound and Music to claim Gift Aid on my donation.
I want all donations I have made to Sound and Music in the past four years and all donations in future to be treated as Gift Aid donations until I notify you otherwise. To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income or capital gains tax must at least equal the amount claimed by all charities and CASCs in the tax year from HMRC. Council Tax and VAT do not qualify. Sound and Music will claim 25p on every £1 you donate.
