South West Music School and Live Music Now

SWMS would like to invite alented music students to join their programme of training.

Music engagement in care settings

Live Music Now – www.livemusicnow.org.uk

Is a national charity that develops the potential of outstandingly talented musicians in the UK, at the start of their careers.

Live Music Now works with a very diverse range of people that rarely, if ever, have the opportunity to experience live music – some of whom are very disadvantaged. They often face difficulties in communicating, cut off from the joy and pleasures of participating and sharing with others. LMN’s approach to overcoming these barriers is through the quality of our musicians and the way we deliver our music.
