Who We Are

Music of Life is a UK charity that provides tailored individual musical tuition, performing opportunities, group workshops and a range of associated services for children and young people with a range of disabilities.

Led by a team of professional, enthusiastic and committed people the charity uses music to enhance personal development and raise self esteem in young people with disabilities who are interested in music making but would otherwise struggle to afford access to it.

Many of the youngsters we work with are from economically deprived families who, without our help, would be unable to fund such tuition themselves. We work with them on a regular and long term basis and, in so doing, are able to identify and nurture talent. The wider impact of our work is however much greater than that. For instance:

Life Skills – having the opportunity to partake in high quality musical activities has been shown to have profound positive impact on the wider aspects of our beneficiaries. It enhances their overall educational attainment, boosts their confidence, improves their social skills, makes positive changes to their medical conditions and leaves them better equipped to capitalise on opportunities they will find in their adult lives.

Societal Perceptions – a major challenge of living with a disability is the perception held by the wider society. By enhancing the life skills of our beneficiaries and providing them with opportunities to perform as an integral part of musical organisations, we help promote positive perceptions.
