We provide free music lessons for children to make music accessible to everyone


I have been a trustee for OMF for several years and passionately believe in their aims to provide the joy of music learning and sharing to those children and adults who are from disadvantaged backgrounds. As a musician and parent, I am more than aware that the cost of learning an instrument means only those with considerable means can access it. 

OMF currently provides opportunities for 85 children to learn and play instruments bringing joy, enrichment and confidence into their lives. There is a powerful sense of community for the families many of whom are refugees or asylum seekers. 

How wonderful would it be for us to be able to provide opportunities for up to 200 children within a year !
