We are passionate about supporting music at all levels! To make it easier to explore what we do we’ve split our work into two areas: Engage and Elevate. Engage covers our supported music making for children, young people and vulnerable adults. Elevate is about supporting music careers, though recording, promoting, training and development, pick one of these areas below to find out more.
