The aim of the H R Taylor Charitable Trust is to encourage the performance of live classical music in Surrey and adjacent areas. Children and young adults showing exceptional musical talent who live in Surrey or have a strong link to Surrey [eg music students or recent music graduates], and intend to make a career in music, can apply to the Trust for help in purchasing an instrument or part-funding of tuition, should their financial means be insufficient. The Trust’s grants are confined to UK citizens and exclude funding for courses at foreign universities.


Your application should be by email, no more than four to six A4 pages long when printed, and comprise:


Your CV, including testimonials from your teacher or other qualified person.


Your claim to a strong link to Surrey.


Written quotes from two or more suppliers for the same instrument. Where alternatives are unavoidable, you should explain and indicate a preference. Links to, or printouts from, a website or catalogue are not acceptable.


Any other relevant documentation, such as an offer letter from a music college.


A covering note from you, justifying your application.
