TOMORROW’S WARRIORS NEEDS YOUR HELP to keep its acclaimed Learning Programme £FREE for the next generation of UK Jazz musicians, to keep it accessible across cultural divides and barriers, with a particular focus on Black musicians and young women, and to get us through the Covid-19 crisis.
The Covid-19 pandemic has presented a number of challenges that we absolutely must overcome if we are to continue making a difference to the lives of the young people on our programme and transforming the landscape in music education and the wider music industry.
Due to Covid-19, Tomorrow’s Warriors lost 112 confirmed live gigs between March-September 2020 alone, wiping out 100% of a vital income stream needed to keep our engines running and to continue providing the unique and extensive support to young jazz musicians, in particular black talent and young women, who are so under-represented in the scene.
Throughout lockdown we have provided much-needed continuity to our young learning community via weekly virtual learning sessions. We’ve been keeping our young musicians engaged, supported, connected, helping them to continue developing their talent and keeping our music leaders and artists employed. Doing so has been incredibly important at a time when all of us – collectively and individually – have been stretched and challenged on so many levels. Learning music or taking part in group musical activity may not be high on the list of most people’s priorities just now but, for a creative, dedicated young person passionate about music, these sessions have proved a lifeline.
“Thank you so much for setting up and running the zoom session. My son needs structure for his mental health, and he has just been the most communicative he has been all week (immediately after the session). Tomorrow’s Warriors is awesome, thank you.” Warrior Parent
We want to continue providing the necessary support to young people, then hit the ground running and resume our trusted and respected Learning and Events Programme when it is safe to do so, but we need your support to survive this crisis.
A free programme is not cost-free!
Every year, we need to raise around £200,000 to keep our Young Artist Development Programme open and free so that all talented musicians aged 11-25 can discover and share their magic through jazz, regardless of their background.
Your donations help members of Tomorrow’s Warriors rise to extraordinary heights and, year on year, empower and enable increasing numbers of talented young musicians, many of whom simply do not have the means to afford regular, quality training.
Thank you for supporting Tomorrow’s Warriors! Here you can join our growing family of generous donors who very kindly support us with a regular monthly, quarterly or annual gift. Regular gifts help us plan ahead, and provide a degree of certainty around the future sustainability of our programme.
