When & Where
Live Music Now
Live Music Now works with a diverse range of people that rarely, if ever, have the opportunity to experience live music. They often face difficulties in communicating, cut off from the joy and pleasures of participating and sharing with others. LMN's approach to overcoming these barriers is through the quality of our musicians and the way we deliver our music. The joy that live music brings in a moment can be transformative over time. LMN delivers programmes tailored to participants whose lives are challenged due to disability, illness, poverty or social disadvantage.
It is our role to inspire young professional musicians to use their talents for the benefit of those who are otherwise excluded from the joy of live music. LMN selects young, professional musicians who combine exceptional performing skills with special qualities of insight, generosity of spirit and flexibility. We enhance their skills through our distinctive approach to training and performance, and send them out into the community to perform for older people and children with special educational needs across the UK.
It is our ambition to bring live music to more people, achieving greater beneficial impact through sustained involvement.
Alongside our bespoke project training we offer a programme of stand-alone CPD sessions open to current LMN musicians, LMN alumni and the wider music education sector.
These sessions are pitched at two levels of experience:
Basic - for musicians new to the Live Music Now scheme and those with limited experience of leading or supporting music sessions, or those looking to refresh their basic skills
Advanced - for musicians with some experience of leading sessions, ready to take their practice to the next level.
If you would like some advice on which level of training would best suit your needs, please call the LMN office on 020 7014 2828 to discuss.
