I am trying to raise £28000 to pay for my tuition fees to study  performing arts at the MTA (Musical Theatre Academy)

If I cannot raise the total £28000 (which covers the two full years of study) then I am looking to raise a minimum of £14500 to pay the first year, so I then have longer to raise money for my second year!!

Matt's Story

I am Matthew David Parsons and along with 21 other performers I have secured a place at one of the most prestigious performing arts schools in the UK. I have been so lucky to be accepted onto the course offered by the MTA. With this acceptance though comes the cost of £28000. As the school is completely independent it is run entirely from student fees. You can find all information here which will show you just how amazing this opportunity really is. As there are no scholarships available I am only left with a few options. Save as much money as I can before fees have to be paid in June along with crowd sourcing and applying for any educational grants offered by independent companies that may be available. After already studying an undergraduate degree I want to borrow as little money as I can from things such as a career development loan.

Any money I do save (before the course starts in October 2016) will go towards the living costs that will occur.

Any money raised from this will be used to pay for my course fees and to help me achieve my dream of becoming a performer. The school has a 100% graduation rate since it opened 8 years ago. Every student that has graduated has gone onto be signed by an agent and started to work in the industry. All statistics are on the MTA's website go take a gander :)!!

All money raised will go directly to the colleges tuition fees, and any donations raised in excess will be used to go towards living costs.

If we hit my full target then all money raised will go to the following -

The MTA 2 yr Musical Theatre Intensive Training Course 2016-2018 Course fee £14,000/yr: Total £28,000 which have to be raised to keep my place at the college.


I have some great rewards to thank everyone who donates, whatever amount you might give. Check them out - they're to your right!

You can follow me on Twitter and also share this profile with friends and also # the hell out of it :)!! I will also use my YouTube channel to upload videos and send them to the people that want personal songs from the rewards section

You don't need to give money to help me succeed, but sharing this project with anyone and everyone be it by word of mouth or the click of a mouse... everyone could help :)!!
