Many young people today have very limited access to music education. Dwindling opportunities within schools are increasingly focused on instrument learning rather than creative music making. Young composers today have fewer opportunities and resources than young performers, with no clear pathways for progression.
BCMG provides free creative music opportunities for young people ages 8 to 18.
We offer young people the chance to work with industry professionals in a creatively encouraging, fun environment.

We are also one of the leading organisations supporting teachers delivering the composing element of the curriculum.
The breadth and scope of our Learning programme would be reduced significantly were it not for the help of charitable donations.
You can support this far-reaching, enriching programme from a one-off donation of just £20. In return, you’ll receive our special Learning e-news and an invitation to all Learning performances and workshops.
