We believe every child and young person in London should have the opportunity to experience music-making.

Sound Connections works in partnership to strengthen the music sector, bridge gaps in provision and deliver landmark music programmes.

Sound Connections develops, supports & empowers young Londoners through high quality music-making opportunities.

We do this by delivering groundbreaking participatory music projects, 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 Singing.
