Tackling inequality takes a whole community, and PMF aims to harness the power of music to action real change in one of London’s most complex inner-city boroughs. Our free music education programmes give people from all walks of life the support and resources they need to reach their full potential.

    Situation

    Despite appearances, Pimlico contains areas of considerable deprivation and we aim to create a level playing field for all residents. We know cultural activities support wellbeing, improve educational engagement, build confidence, offer a sense of belonging, and give access to beneficial networks that can improve life chances. However, not everyone has access to these kinds of opportunities and resources and we aim to change that.

    Solution

    Over the past eight years, PMF has developed an extensive range of free musical activities that engage local people on a weekly basis. We are embedded in eight local primary schools working with over 800 children a week. We run the Pimlico Children's Choir which gives children time with professional singers on a weekly basis. Our Foundation Scholars programme offers a rigorous, advanced training for children with exceptional performing opportunities and all our programmes are free!
