Founded as an independent charity in 1991, Merton Music Foundation (MMF) has been providing high quality music, arts and culture education programmes to the young people of Merton and the surrounding areas for over 30 years. MMF believes that music is for life and for everyone. Every single child deserves the chance to experience a rich musical education, both in and outside the school environment.
MMF is the lead partner for the Merton Music Education Hub. Working with its hub partners, MMF supports and advocates for music in Merton schools via staff training, whole-class and special projects. MMF organises large scale concerts and events and actively contributes to the national discussion about music education. MMF offers pupils one-to-one and small group instrumental lessons in school, out of school & online, operates an instrument hire service, provides financial assistance to enable young people to access lessons, and runs a wide range of groups, ensembles and choirs from its Music Centres across Merton.
