The Mayor’s Music Fund gives instrumental scholarships to talented Key Stage 2 and 3 students who cannot afford to continue their music lessons. There are 280 Mayor’s Music Scholars from 240 London schools. Their programme of musical activities is run by London's music education hubs.
The Mayor’s Music Fund has also awarded £250,000 to give 6,500 young musicians the chance to learn with top professional musicians and perform in venues like the Royal Albert Hall. Funding applications are made through London’s music hubs and the deadline is every November.
