Founded by the UK’s Disability and Access Ambassador for Arts and Culture and Churchill Fellow, David Stanley BEM, The Music Man Project is a multi-award-winning, world record-breaking international music education charity for people with learning disabilities. It provides accessible music tuition leading to inspirational performances, gives grants for accessible arts education, promotes equal access to performance, carries out research and raises awareness of the achievements of disadvantaged people in the arts. 

The Music Man Project students have performed critically acclaimed original productions at the West End’s London Palladium and the iconic Royal Albert Hall. They’ve entertained members of the Royal Family, opened a national TV advert, appeared on the BBC, ITV and Sky TV and recorded with The Band of the Royal Marines. They hold the world record for the largest triangle ensemble and recently received a standing ovation from The King.

The charity oversees a network of regional teaching hubs in counties across England and in every nation of the UK. It has also reached communities thousands of miles away in South Africa, India, Nepal, USA and the Philippines. Regional Music Man Projects are officially licenced for free, enabling them to access exclusive music, teaching resources and performance opportunities specifically created for musicians with learning disabilities.

The Music Man Project is proud to work in partnership with global marketing company, TEAM LEWIS, His Majesty’s Bands of the Royal Marines and the Salvation Army.
