The Launchpad Prize was an idea that began as a desire to help young musicians in some significant way. With our limited financial resources it was difficult to come up with something that would make enough of a difference to make it worthwhile. The idea of sponsoring a prize at one of the UK music colleges was something we just couldn't afford, and we also felt that we'd like to offer something to more that just one college and be a little more 'hands on'. We eventually decided that we would assist one young (predominantly) final year wind ensemble from each of the 7 major UK music colleges to launch themselves onto the professional circuit.
First awarded in 2009, the Launchpad Prize consists of practical help, including: a substantial JEWM music voucher, dedicated space on the JEWM website, publicity at any time through our online media channels (our blog, Twitter, Facebook etc.), editorial coverage wherever possible, unlimited free paper advertising inserted into music orders, exclusive access to the JEWM shop with use of all music and facilities, complimentary copies of all current and future Emerson Edition publications which fit their instrumental line-up and anything else we can think of!
We offer a truly comprehensive selection of wind music online, with well over 57,000 titles listed (and increasing daily), most of which are in stock and ready for immediate despatch.
We also stock a large range of theory and aural resources and specialist books.
We are absolutely committed to providing a first class service to musicians worldwide.
If you’re looking for a piece of music that isn’t listed on our website, we will do whatever we can to find it for you, no matter how long it takes. Just let us know what you’re looking for.
We are a friendly, helpful team of people with lots of specialist knowledge between us, so we’re always happy to offer advice and information whenever needed.
