Fundraise for us!

Have you always dreamt of learning a musical instrument but feel you might have missed your chance? Why not realise your dream at the same time as raising money for London Music Masters!


The challenge is to take a Grade One exam after just 8 weeks, by borrowing an instrument from a colleague or friend, having a few lessons… and practice, practice, practice!


Taking part in a Grade One Challenge is a fun way to raise money as well as learning a new skill (and of course gaining a glimpse into how easy our students make it look!). Previous Grade One Challenges have raised an incredible total of £25,000 to date – so go on, sign up for a fun way to raise even more funds for London Music Masters.


This is also a great team building exercise, so if you think this is a challenge which your team would like to take on, please be in touch!

"Doing the Grade One challenge was an unexpectedly wonderful experience.  Going back to the beginning and learning a completely new instrument was extremely rewarding and I thoroughly enjoyed the process, although I’ll admit that picking up a cello having only ever played brass and keyboard instruments before was quite terrifying!  Having seen the incredible LMM teachers in action capturing the imagination of their students, I am so pleased to have been able to support the organisation and hopefully played a small part in the continuation of LMM’s fantastic education scheme."
