Sound and Music is the national charity for new music. 

Our vision is to create a world where new music and sound prospers, transforming lives, challenging expectations and celebrating the work of its creators.

Over the years we have helped hundreds of composers, creators and music-makers to realise their dreams. We have helped them create new work and ideas, to find and grow their audiences, and to be part of a new music community.

Without Sound and Music and your support much of this work would not be created. There would be fewer opportunities for creators and composers within the new music sector, less time to create new work, fewer networks, fewer audiences, and less sound.  

"To have the support of an organisation like Sound and Music really helped me gain the confidence and experience to move forward. It has led to some amazing relationships with other musicians around the UK and now feeling like I belong." - SaM Composer, 2015

We are there for creators and composers at every stage of their journey; from bringing creative listening to the primary school class room with Minute of Listening, to our Summer School for young composers, moving to our celebrated residencies and touring programmes.

We are proud to be supporting hundreds of composers to create inspiring new work all across the UK – but wouldn’t it be amazing if we could do more? 

With your help we can help more composers and do better work than ever before.

Every composer, no matter what their background, should have the chance to reach their full potential, to create their best work, and to share that work with you. We want to create more opportunities for composers at every career-stage. We want to work with more partners, support more tours, and grow bigger audiences than ever before for the next generation of new music stars.

We want to support exciting, experimental, innovative, challenging, and life-changing new music, and we want you to hear it.


You can help us make the dream happen by Supporting Sound and Music.

You can choose which area of our work to support including our; New Music Fund, Emerging Composers Fund and our Summer School – your donation will help us keep the Summer School open to talented young composers, no matter what their background.

Working with everyone there was such an amazing experience and has influenced my approach to composing. Thank you!" - Summer School Student, 2015
