The London Music Fund is an independent charity with the Mayor of London as Patron. Our vision is that every child in London who demonstrates significant musical ability, enthusiasm and commitment to learning an instrument is given the opportunity to develop their potential. Since 2011 we have invested £2.7 million to music education in the capital, awarded a total of 536 four-year Scholarships across all 32 London boroughs, and funded 41 inspirational projects with more than 50 professional arts organisations, ensembles and venues. Our work has directly involved momre than 10,000 young people, and almost 40,000 others have benefitted by attending concerts, workshops and taster sessions.
“Learning a musical instrument has wide reaching benefits: it improves concentration, academic attainment, contributes to higher self-esteem and, most importantly, raises children’s expectations of what they can achieve in all areas of their lives. I am delighted to be the Patron of the London Music Fund.”
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
