The Mayor’s Music Fund is an independent charity with the Mayor of London as Founder Patron. We provide grants of circa £400,000 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 opportunities to learn from and perform alongside professionals.
Since January 2012 we have worked with almost 9,000 aspiring young musicians with more accessing our programmes every term.
Whether you’re a young person wanting to find out about our musical activities, a parent or carer wanting to know if we can support your child, an educator wanting information about our programmes or you want to find out how you can get involved, we hope you will find all the information you need on the website. If you have any questions our team is a phone call or email away, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
