Why Donate?

By making a donation Sound Connections is able to develop, enable and empower young Londoners through music. Your support allows us to ensure that high quality music opportunities reach the most vulnerable young people; more effectively train musicians and teachers; inform young people about choices and opportunities; and advocate for music’s transformative power to parents, schools, local authorities, government and policy makers.

Sound Connections

Since it began in 2002, Sound Connections has impacted on the lives of over 70,000 young people facing challenging circumstances and supported around 20,000 music leaders to develop their practice. We do this by delivering groundbreaking participatory music projects, providing professional development to music organisations and practitioners, and undertaking high quality action research and advocacy to promote best practice in music education.

How Your Money Helps

Wired4Music, a Sound Connections flagship project, celebrated its 5th birthday in 2015. To help us impact upon the lives of more young people, and achieve the change we know is possible with another 5 years of Wired4Music, we need your help.
