The Mayor’s Music Fund is an independent charity with the Mayor of London as Patron. We provide grants of circa £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 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.
