UK Music Masters Ltd.

London Music Masters

Every week, London Music Masters delivers a high quality music education to 1,300 primary school children from socio-economically challenged areas. Amongst the marginalisation of arts in schools, we believe all children should be able to access the power of music, no matter their background.

Situation

Music has been proven to have significant positive benefits on children’s numeracy, literacy, and social and personal development. However, diminishing in-school arts provision and the price of private lessons means that we are in danger of allowing only the advantaged to benefit economically, socially, and personally from the full range of cultural and creative experiences. In addition, the classical music sector has a systemic lack of diversity, favouring private school educated musicians.

Solution

Our award-winning music education programme, LMM Learning, provides 1,300 children with their own instrument (violin or cello), and 1.5 hours of high-quality instrumental tuition every week. To embed music into their lives we also provide creative composition workshops, performance opportunities, and visits from inspiring artists. So all of this doesn’t exist in a silo, we work with partners to ensure the classical music sector is inclusive and a place that children and schools want to explore.

  • I'm so happy to be involved with London Music Masters because the work that I've seen them do is something that I really, really believe in - to see young children really enjoying music and learning their instrument from a very young age, which I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do.

  • LMM are a fun organisation who have truly instilled in us that we can achieve anything - all it takes is creativity.

  • LMM has been an absolutely brilliant experience. Not only for my daughter, but also for me as a parent. My daughter has gained a lot of experience during the time. She is proud of herself and so am I.
