Sound Connections develops, enables and empowers young Londoners through high quality music-making opportunities.

We do this by delivering ground breaking musical opportunities, providing professional development to music organisations and practitioners, and undertaking high quality action research and advocacy to promote best practice in music education.

We bring together organisations and practitioners working across four key music specialisms: Challenging Circumstances, Early Years, Youth Voice and Sector & Workforce Development.

We established our consultancy service in 2013 to provide specialist services to organisations across the UK, drawing upon many years of music education delivery, strategy and research.
