Geographical remit: 


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, through 4-year Scholarships and with project opportunities 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.


Our vision is simple: we believe that every child who shows musical potential should be given the opportunity to develop that potential, regardless of their background.

We fund two programmes: Scholarships and Partnerships. Working in collaboration with the 32 London borough Music Education Hubs, we work with schools, community music providers and professional musicians across London to develop musical opportunities for children and young people.

Four-year Scholarships are awarded to children who have shown potential and commitment in learning a musical instrument but whose families are unable to pay for the ongoing costs of tuition.

Partnerships are inspirational projects working with a range of partners – these ambitious projects range from West End musicals to funk, classical to grime, and give young musicians the chance to learn from and perform alongside professionals in iconic venues.
