City Hall champions the need for quality music education in London schools. We do this through supporting the following programmes:
London Music Fund
The London Music Fund gives instrumental scholarships to talented Key Stage 2 and 3 students who cannot afford to continue their music lessons. There are 280 Mayor’s Music Scholars from 240 London schools. Their programme of musical activities is run by London's music education hubs.
The Fund has also awarded £250,000 to give 6,500 young musicians the chance to learn with top professional musicians and perform in venues like the Royal Albert Hall. Funding applications are made through London’s music hubs and the deadline is every November.
To find out more visit the London Music Fund website.
Resources for Teachers
The London Curriculum is a resource for Key Stage 2 & 3 teachers. It provides lesson plan examples which bring London's people, places and heritage into daily classroom teaching.

Jargon-free advice for parents
We want parents to confidently support their budding musicians. Learn Music London is a free digital resource that shows why music is great and provides details for local organisations who can help children reach their musical potential.
