Donations:
Medway Music Association and Dynamics CIC work hard to offer musical opportunities to all young people in Medway. We firmly believe that financial barriers should not exist for anyone. We have
managed, in increasingly challenging financial times, to keep the vast majority of our music provision free to all and only ask for minor contributions for a small number of our activities, all of which have a simple bursary scheme.

In order to keep our events and holiday courses accessible to every young person in Medway, we would be very grateful for any donations you can make. All proceeds will go to supporting the work of Medway
Music Association and Dynamics CIC.
