Our Support Programmes for Young People

Plymouth Music Accord has several programmes to encourage young people to develop an interest in music to fund their tuition and help talented young musicians get started on a career in music.
We often pay for tickets so that primary school children can attend a concert free of charge, either as a school group or with family.

Tuition Project

DHSG String Players

The PMA has over the last few years paid for groups of secondary school students to receive music tuition. We had identified a need for students making the transition from primary school, where tuition was provided free, to secondary schools where in general it was not. The scheme is called the Tuition Project.


Young Musicians' Platform
