Let every child learn music

Over 40% of those from low-income families say music lessons are beyond their household budgets, according to our latest research.

It shouldn’t just be children with rich parents who are able to learn an instrument. We want fair access for every child.

Let touring musicians travel

Touring musicians will struggle to work after Brexit. Only 2% of musicians believe that Brexit will have a positive impact on their chances of work.

Musicians need to be able to work in the EU, and the musicians you love need to be able to come to the UK for work too.

Let live music live

A third of live music venues have closed in the last 10 years. In 2017, over forty venues closed in London alone. These venues matter to musicians and to everyone like you who loves them.

If you care about the future of music, join us. Sign up as a supporter for free and help to protect the music you love.
