Sound and Music is the national charity for new music in the UK.
Our mission is to maximise the opportunities for people of all ages to create and enjoy new music.
Through our education work, we aim to nurture and promote the musical creativity and compositional skills of children and young people. We do this through a diverse programme that provides opportunities for young people to create and compose their own music, as well as continuing professional development and resources for music educators. We also work at a national level to increase the awareness and understanding of the value of composing and creativity.
Our work includes composer and artist development, partnerships with a range of organisations, audience development, touring, information and advice, network building, and education.
We champion new music and the work of British composers and artists, and seek to ensure that they are at the heart of cultural life and enjoyed by many.
