AIM for students
What can we do better to help you prepare for the future?
AIM's commitment to students
AIM is committed to ensuring young people get the information and support you need to determine your own futures. Whether or not you want a career in music, you deserve to move forward with good understanding, tools, skills and confidence to grow, thrive and contribute, whatever your life decisions. So we listen to find out what you need the most now, we search for tools and resources that you can access directly and we promote you as the storytellers of your own journeys.
What Next? Survey
Are you aged 16 - 23? As a student, you have a unique understanding of your own music education experience. We want to hear about what you need next. Because when enough students contribute truthful feedback, music programs can make changes to empower students like you today and tomorrow. We will share what we find and credit you for contributing. Share with us - it takes 10 minutes!
AIM Young Changemakers
A leadership opportunity for music students who want to influence change
AIM is seeking changemakers aged 18 - 23 participating in voluntary music programs around the world for AIM's first youth committee, launching in July 2022. Your voices are vital for helping us to improve learning and potential pathways for young people and young adults. This is a great way to develop your leadership skills and enrich your CV.
The Posture Project
‘You Should Not Hurt When You Play Your Instruments’
The Posture Project was created for AIM by Concert Violist Jennifer Stumm, Director of Ilumina, in response to concerns about students' physical health in and beyond music-making. Jennifer gathered a team of outstanding international artists representing many of the major instruments found in a symphony orchestra, to create video clips modelling healthy posture, techniques and exercises to minimise strains and facilitate artistry. These clips are easy to understand and follow, even by people without technical expertise who wish to find help for others.
