Roman, 17, from Brighton, is a dedicated guitar player and is determined to take his music to the next level. Limited financial resources however meant that it was difficult for his family to meet the costs of tuition, equipment and rehearsal time.

We awarded Roman £864 to cover the costs of guitar tuition and rehearsal time over a year.

Roman says, “I am really grateful for this opportunity as this means I can continue on my journey to become a world-renowned guitarist without having to worry about inconveniencing my family with expensive lesson fees. Now I can focus fully on learning to play more.
