Music-making near you

We invest in projects where they're needed most, with over 350 taking place nationwide.

We do things differently

We believe in practical, creative music-making of every possible style and technique. Beatboxing and bhangra, grime and grindcore, classical and contemporary.

Everyone has the ability to make music. They just need support and guidance to discover what works best for them.

Musical inclusion

Our vision is that one day, all children and young people can make music, whatever their background or circumstances. In order to achieve this, we're working collaboratively to transform music education in England.

Project highlights

We regularly get sent brilliant pictures, videos and music from the projects we fund. What better way of celebrating young people’s music-making than sharing it with everyone? Here are some highlights from recent projects, up to and including summer 2018.
