In the Making: Launch of 2024 Bursary Appeal

Share this page

Sound and Music is raising funds to support young people attending In the Making, our annual trailblazing artist development programme for young people aged 14-18. In the Making is the only programme of its type in the UK that supports young music creators and composers. The 12-month programme includes a week-long residential, online skills sessions and networking opportunities.

In the Making has a fee of £500 but the actual cost to us is in excess of £2,000.

This year, we invite the music community – and anyone who wants to share the joy of music making – to donate to the bursary appeal and help us raise an additional £5,000, so that even more young people get the time, space and support to develop their skills as young composers.

“Through the exceptional generosity of our donors, we are able to ensure that the unique, fun and life-changing experience of In the Making is more inclusive and accessible by removing financial barriers to participation. I hope you will consider making your own contribution, if you are able to do so. Every single donation will support our ambition to bring the frontier of new music and sound closer to every person.”


– Dr Will Dutta, Chief Executive

In the Making is a transformative and remarkable programme with a lasting impact on the young people aged 14-18 who take part. 50 young composers have an intense, supportive and challenging experience. Bursaries are very important in broadening access to the programme and ensuring that all who are eligible can attend.

Your support will make a difference.
