Boris Johnson launches new London based music charity for prodigious musical children
Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, has launched a new music charity in London that will provide prodigious musical children with access to music instruments, instrumental tuition and a Saturday music school as part of a unique four-year scholarship.
The charity, which is known as the Mayor of London's Fund for Young Musicians, will award children with "significant musical talent and commitment" the music scholarships across the 33 London boroughs.
The idea behind the charity, which has come out of the mayor's Music Education Strategy, is to provide talented young musicians with every chance to succeed regardless of their background. It will be particularly useful to families who cannot afford a music education.
Mr Johnson said: "Music can transform the lives of young people from all backgrounds, enriching the mind, teaching valuable skills and discipline and importantly, providing a source of invaluable self expression, personal enjoyment and life enhancing career options."
There is also the opportunity for around 10,000 children and young people up to the ages of 18 to take work along professional musicians.
The mayor’s Music Education Steering Group is made up of leading figures from music industry and education sectors such as Sir Nicholas Kenyon, managing director of the barbican, and Karen Brock, head of Tower Hamlets Music Service.
