Trust Music Governance and Staff

Trust Music was born from a belief in the power of music to transform the lives of young people.

Founded in 2014 by Carolyn Baxendale, John Summers, Patricia Tremayne and Rob Tinniswood, the Charity set about providing practical and financial support for music projects which raise aspirations and enable young people to fulfil their potential. Since our inception we have developed strategic partnerships, working closely with our supporters, to develop the case for continued investment in music education.

The Board of Trustees has grown substantially and now comprises a highly experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated team with a broad range of backgrounds who work together to bring further success to the Charity. The Board is supported in their responsibilities by two permanent members of staff, Caroline Bradshaw the Studio Manager and Radhaika Kapur who leads on Marketing and Communications.
