Music changes lives. At Music for All we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to play music.
In the UK we’re continuing to face increasing social challenges, such as an ageing population and growing diversity within our local communities. Getting involved in music can present a wealth of opportunities – helping us to break down barriers; providing a variety of educational opportunities as well as helping us to find ways to integrate many diverse and minority groups positively into our society.
Playing a musical instrument can provide a real sense of personal achievement or could allow parents to experience that unique feeling of pride – hearing and seeing their children perform. At MfA we’re passionate about helping people to find ways to understand and experience the enjoyment and benefits of playing music.
About the Music For All charity
At MfA nearly all of us are musicians, involved in the musical instrument industry or both. So we really know first-hand what an amazing affect making music can have on people’s lives. We see everything from disadvantaged young people blossoming at school through to older adults discovering music sometimes for the first time, much later on in life. In our view, EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn to play music. Sadly, many people are not fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments or ways to help them to learn and discover. This is where we come in.
Our Major Projects
Helping Individuals and Communities
Music for Individuals
Not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments and lessons. Our Grant Application process allows us to help people fulfil their musical dreams. Young, old, regardless of personal or life challenges, we truly want music to be for all!
Music in the Community
Many projects and initiatives take place throughout the UK that all aim to bring music to their community. Most would benefit from a “helping hand” to fulfil their potential in becoming truly sustainable music programmes. Our Community Project Application process puts us in a position to be that “helping hand”.
“I am delighted to help Music for All in their quest to inspire more people to participate in music making, either for the first time or to return to playing after having lapsed.”
Jools Holland, Patron
We are extremely fortunate to have the support and endorsement of many professional musicians. Our Ambassadors generously give their time to spread the Music for All message and we are very grateful to all of them!

Music is an essential part of the fabric of our lives. It is an extremely powerful means of communication, playing a role in many of our social and religious institutions. Making music can help break down cultural barriers and strengthen social unity. Making music can also play an important part in helping us find a balance in our busy lives, improving our wellbeing and helping us rediscover who we are through creative self-expression.
