How you can help


Support the next generation of exceptional musicians by making a donation securely online below. Any donation, large or small, helps us in our work to perpetuate the vision and ideals of our Founder, and provide an outstanding musical and academic education to talented young people, irrespective of their financial circumstances.

The Yehudi Menuhin School admits pupils based solely on their talent, potential and passion for music – not their ability to pay the fees.

Our parents come from all walks of life, from shop assistants to teachers, musicians to small business owners. Every year, 9 out of 10 pupils need financial assistance in order to attend the School.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference and we are deeply grateful for your support.

You can donate securely below. If you would prefer not to make your donation online, or you would like to support another area of our work, please contact the Development Department at or on 01932 584 744, and we will advise you of other options.

Become a Friend

Since 1971, the Friends of The Yehudi Menuhin School have played a vital role in supporting the School and its pupils, not only through much-needed financial assistance for fees, specialist teaching courses and projects, but also by providing our young musicians with a supportive and appreciative audience as they progress through the School and beyond. Priority booking, pre-concert receptions and special Friends fundraising events are amongst the benefits enjoyed by our Friends. Join now and play your part in supporting the next generation of professional musicians.

Become a Steward

The smooth running of our busy and varied programme of concerts, lectures and events would not be possible without the much appreciated help of our dedicated team of volunteer Stewards. In return for their services in the Hall, the Stewards receive a free ticket to those events at which they assist, and the team also comes together twice a year for a refresher training session and our annual Stewards Party.
