Live Music Now

LMN’s approach has been developed over 37 years, realising the vision of our founders, legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin and his friend, LMN Founder Chairman, Ian Stoutzker CBE.

LMN selects young, professional musicians who combine exceptional performing skills with special qualities of insight, generosity of spirit and flexibility. We enhance their skills through our distinctive approach to training and performance, and send them out into the community to perform for older people and children with special educational needs across the UK.

The joy that live music brings in a moment can be transformative over time. LMN delivers programmes tailored to participants whose lives are challenged due to disability, illness, poverty or social disadvantage. It is our ambition to bring live music to more people, achieving greater beneficial impact through sustained involvement. It is our role to inspire young professional musicians to use their talents for the benefit of those who are otherwise excluded from the joy of live music.

“Music, amongst all the great arts, is the language which penetrates most deeply into the human spirit, reaching people through every barrier, disability, language and circumstance. This is why it has been my dream to bring music back into the lives of those people whose lives are especially prone to stress and suffering… so that it might comfort, heal and bring delight.”
