Sponsor a Child at Berkshire Maestros

By joining the Berkshire Maestros Sponsor a Child scheme, you’ll be helping to provide a child from a disadvantaged background with a better future.  Together we can help such children to improve their self-confidence and self-discipline as well as develop their performing, creative and appraising skills. It has long been known that learning a musical instrument improves a child’s cognitive ability so you will also be helping them to improve their academic achievements at school as well as their musical attainment.

Berkshire Maestros will identify those children who are in need of financial support to be able to continue their lessons. Some will have short-term needs (such as a parent being temporarily too sick to work) or long-term needs (such as the family is permanently on a low income). We can either partially fund or fully fund a child’s tuition through Sponsor a Child. The financial support could fund their instrumental lessons, either individually or as part of a group, or fund their membership of an ensemble. Your sponsorship could therefore go a long way to helping us to teach children to be fully-rounded and capable musicians.

There are no limits to how much you could offer to the Sponsor a Child scheme but, as a guideline, fully funding a child’s lessons within a group for a year starts at £300.
