Charity information

Young Music Makers of Dyfed

Young Music Makers of Dyfed combines the work of two smaller charities, Young Musicians of Dyfed and Young Composer of Dyfed. It provides education and performing opportunities to young instrumentalists under 19 living in West Wales.
Many opportunities exist for voice in Wales but less so for those who play an instrument.
We also run an educational process for young composers, providing masterclasses with a professional composer and ensemble in residence. Each year the person named Young Composer of Dyfed is commissioned to write for the winning Young Musician of Dyfed and the piece is performed at St Davids Cathedral Festival. Donations to our charity which is run entirely by volunteers helps support music education in this rural area.
