Music is proven to be beneficial to health and wellbeing; benefitting participants and audiences alike. West Sussex Music is the largest provider of high-quality music education to children and young people in West Sussex. Our whole-class first access programmes, instrumental and vocal lessons, ensemble activities, singing and community projects, instrument loan and wide-range of large-scale events benefit over 25,000 children in 280 schools, across the county, every year.

Every week during term time, in Music Centres across the county, children enjoy a wide range of musical activities including bands, choirs, orchestras as well as lessons and aural and theory classes. From 2020, this will include the first ‘Orchestras Inc.’ which are ensembles for disabled and non-disabled children and young people.

We also offer teacher training and specialist advice and support for schools; helping them to achieve the best possible outcomes for pupils, their families and the community. We are aiming to provide bursaries for all those who would not otherwise be able to access the lessons or Music Centres.

Your gift  can help more young people enjoy music  – make music your legacy.
