The London Music Fund is an independent charity with the Mayor of London as Patron. We provide grants of around £300,000 every year to enable thousands of children and young people across every London borough to develop their musical potential. We do this through our unique four-year instrumental Scholarships programme, for children from low-income families, and through collaborative partnership projects in inspiring venues, enabling young musicians to learn from and perform alongside professionals. Since January 2012 we have worked with over 10,000 aspiring young musicians with more accessing our programmes every term.
“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
