About Scottish Young Musicians
Scottish Young Musicians is Scotland’s festival of music competitions open to every school student in Scotland who sings or plays an instrument. The aim is to help young people achieve their ambitions, develop their talent in music and have fun. It is Scotland’s only music competition where funding and expertise is offered to every school and Local Authority, giving all pupils in the country the chance to take part.
Thousands took part in the first ever Scottish Young Musicians festival of music competitions in 2022 with 22 talented finalists from the local authority rounds competing in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for the Scottish Young Musicians Solo Performer of the Year 2022.
Scottish Young Musicians is made possible through the support of its funders and donors. SYM receives no local or central government support and relies on individual donors, corporate donors and trusts and foundations for all its funding.
Your donations make a real difference to the lives of our young people across Scotland. We are already seeing proof of how this has changed young lives throughout the country and especially in many of the lowest areas classed by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.
