What we do
We are totally devastated to learn of the tragic death of our dear friend, patron and charity president, Sir David Amess MP. Sir David was our greatest supporter, helping us to achieve our dreams through his tireless work over two decades. We pray for his family at this dreadful time. He did so much to help other people yet his life was so cruelly taken. Peace and Hope Sir David.
The Music Man Project is an international music education service for children and adults with learning disabilities, providing accessible music tuition leading to inspirational performances.
Run by volunteers, the charity gives grants for accessible arts education, promotes equal access to performance, carries out research and raises awareness of the achievements of disadvantaged people in the arts.
The Music Man Project was founded by Churchill Fellow, David Stanley BEM, to meet a growing demand from parents for regular and accessible musical opportunities for their children.
How we help
We deliver inspirational concerts and workshops across the country which raise awareness and challenge misconceptions. Previous engagements have included a Remembrance Day concert at the Royal College of Music, a performance to close World Mental Health Day at the Royal College of Psychiatrists, entertaining 39,000 runners at the London Marathon and performing at both the London Palladium and Royal Albert Hall.
The project nurtures innate musicality, delivering education, enjoyment and performances through the teaching of original music at special schools, colleges, care homes, weekly music schools and daily adult classes in the community. It offers the same opportunities enjoyed by aspiring mainstream musicians by providing the best tuition, instruments, musical repertoire and performance platforms available.
