Click here to read Music for All’s Annual Report for 2019/20.
This in-depth report provides an overview of the work of Music for All during 2019/20 and demonstrates how the charity continues to fulfil its mission of helping people of all ages and backgrounds get involved in music making.
It highlights significant events such as Learn to Play and Make Music Day, details the volume and type of grants awarded to music makers and features background stories on award recipients.
For those Music for All has supported by contributing towards an instrument or lessons, or through instrument donation, their joy is unbounded. As Jessica, who always wanted to learn to play the piano, comments – “I can say that this is truly a miracle. Help with piano lessons is allowing me to achieve my goal but it is also helping my mental welfare.”
And Stephen who received a guitar donation as he tried to record his debut album says – “Without the support of Music for All, I would still be several months away from being able to go into the studio.”
For community groups Music for All awards impact a wide range of music makers. The Blue Light Symphony Orchestra supports members of Cornwall’s emergency services through music therapy. They say “This award is a huge boost to us. The money will mean we can get more of our percussionists involved.”
The ability of music to promote positivity and social cohesion during these bleak times is evident everywhere. The charity plans to ensure we can continue to provide access to music making despite the economic, educational and social challenges people face. The knowledge Music for All can bring such joy to people’s lives and the continuing support of our donors provides constant inspiration and drives the charity’s ambition.
If you are a manufacturer or retailer who would like to contribute with an instrument donation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, we’d be very pleased to hear from you.
