Live Music Now was founded by Yehudi Menuhin and Founder Chairman Ian Stouzker, with the inspiration that by embracing the power of music to transform lives, musicians play a central part in a healthy society. Live Music Now operates throughout the UK & Ireland with two major strategic aims: 1 To bring live music of the highest quality to those for whom access to its benefits is normally restricted. 2 To support the professional development of musicians at the outset of their careers, ensuring the highest quality of delivery through a rigorous selection and training process.
I can only think of music as something inherent in every human being - a birthright. Music co-ordinates mind, body and spirit Yehudi Menuhin
Listening to live music has a proven impact on behaviour, health and wellbeing. And yet the people who need these benefits most are excluded from involvement in live music through ill health, disability, isolation or poverty. Young musicians have enormous potential, as they start out on their professional musical lives, to develop skills for creative, participatory performance which touches the heart and generates a powerful, therapeutic response in audiences and participants. Live Music Now works to bring these groups together to change lives.

Personal Stories I really enjoyed the music today because I was actually doing it myself, rather than just listening. I find that so many things are done for me now and it was great to take control and do what I wanted to do. Mrs D
Personal Stories This class has enabled me to use other qualities in me that I can use in Employment Environment, helping other colleagues to achieve their results and also myself.

Traditional English Music Folk music of England is a type of traditionally based music, often contrasted with courtly, classical and later commercial music, for which evidence exists from the later medieval period. It has been preserved and transmitted orally, through print and later through recordings.
Traditional English Music The term is used to refer to English traditional music and music composed, or delivered, in a traditional style. English folk music has produced or contributed to several important musical genres, including sea shanties, jigs, hornpipes and dance music, such as that used for Morris dancing.
