Music for All is dedicated to changing lives across the UK by improving access to music making.  We are a passionate, focused and ambitious UK charity helping disadvantaged music makers experience the joys and far-reaching benefits of making music.

Established for over 20 years, we have a long track record of providing support.  In the past 5 years alone we have awarded over £300,000 in cash grants and donated hundreds of instruments and equipment to individuals, community groups and educational establishments, and provided free ‘Learn to Play’ experiences for thousands of people.

Learn to Play '22

Learn to Play will be back in 2022 on 8th & 9th October. Alongside events at venues across the UK, we will be releasing more inspiring instrument tutorial videos on our YouTube channel to join the existing videos from LTP ’21.

Look out for updates on our website and via our social media pages. In the meantime, learn more about last year’s event below!
