Music making is incredibly important to young people. It is, in fact, their most widely enjoyed pastime, equal to gaming and ahead of sport, drama and dancing. In the UK, however, around 30% of children are living below the poverty line and are therefore potentially missing out on the significant proven benefits of music engagement.
At Trust Music we believe that every child has the right to a musical education, regardless of their financial circumstances and background. Since our launch in 2014 we have provided financial, pastoral and educational support to over 100 children. Our ambition now is to help a greater number of young people in need.
Donating to the Gift of Music campaign will help us to support more young people on their musical journeys. Every regular donation means that we can consistently provide instrument hire, lessons or music ensemble membership to another child in need. We hope you will consider giving a Gift that truly inspires.
