We provide accessible music education to raise awareness, equality & opportunity


The family and loved ones of Sir David Amess, MP for Southend West, have been overwhelmed by the public support and the number of kind messages, flowers and tributes left in his memory, in the wake of his untimely death.

As his funeral approaches, those closest to him kindly request that in lieu of flowers and other tributes, monetary donations are made to several key charities which Sir David passionately and wholeheartedly supported.

One of those is The Music Man Project.

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 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.

The Music Man Project operates across the UK, and has reached South Africa, India, Nepal, the Philippines and America. It supports schools, the Salvation Army, local Mencap societies, Music Education Hubs and individuals in fulfilment of its objective to establish a Music Man Project in every county in England, in every country in the UK and in every continent in the world.

On behalf of Sir David, his family and loved ones, thank you for your kind donation and helping his charitable work live on.
