What makes working with Music for Life special?

Positive Partnership

Music for Life works in partnership with almost 100 independent music teachers who share a belief that more is achieved acting together than alone. Our work ethic is based on a collaborative partnership that is mutually supportive and respectful.

Positive Spirit

The team of teachers we work with are (dare we say it?!) happy and engaged in their work as music teachers. This positive team spirit is very evident to schools and parents and has been picked up on by two independent professional reviews of our service.

Positively Self-Sufficient

Unlike most other school music services, there have been no cutbacks in recent years because we do not receive any public funding directly. Over almost 20 years we have learned to be self-sufficient so we have been much less effected by recent cuts to music education funding.

Positively Giving Back

Not only is Music for Life self-sufficient, but we contribute resources back into our local community’s music education.

Every year, Music for Life donate tens of thousands of pounds to provide free ensembles, exciting workshops and spectacular concerts. We arrange several Associated Board Special Visit Centres across the area over the year and support families facing hardship with the costs of learning an instrument.

Get Involved!

Whether you are a well-established instrumental or singing teacher working in Cheshire, North Staffordshire or Wirral, or if you are just starting out, why not contact us to find out how working in partnership with Music for Life could support you? We’d love to hear from you.

Praise for Music for Life

Mrs Lavelle, Altrincham

Your emphasis on inclusion and excellence in seemingly equal measure is really remarkable. The performances were much more joyful and committed than anything we have seen before from people of that age and experience. Your choice of music, the type of arranging and the personalities of the people you employ clearly works very well and is something of a special formula.

Mrs Sadler, Crewe

As someone who has always taken a sympathetic and supportive interest in our daughter (whom you know to be severely /profoundly deaf ) we thought you would want to know that she has won a National competition for deaf musicians! Her prize includes a 2 day Masterclass, taught by specialists of national repute and then she is playing at the Birmingham Rep Theatre. Well done Mrs Turner and Music For Life!

Mrs Cliffe, Helsby

May I take this opportunity to say how very happy and impressed we are with the level of care and motivational input given to young musicians by ALL of your staff. Samuel can be easily overwhelmed by new situations but with MfL he has blossomed and grown in confidence. Music for Life are to be highly recommended as a professional, motivational and inspiring organisation with talented and inspirational tutors who really care about the child.

S Grinton, parent, Neston.

You have helped Adam enormously with his music and he has grown with confidence since you started the band.

It was an honour playing with such great people and it was in many ways the main driving force keeping me motivated to play music. Thanks for everything you’ve done for me.
