Live Music Now

Live Music Now

Live Music Now (LMN) is a UK-wide charity, created by violinist Yehudi Menuhin and Ian Stoutzker in 1977. 

LMN delivers interactive live music programmes in care homes and hospitals, and a range of community and healthcare settings. Our work is delivered by high-quality professional musicians at the start of their careers , who we train to deliver projects based on the latest medical, educational and healthcare research. They are drawn from a wide variety of genres, from classical to folk, jazz to world and pop. Each year, they deliver over 2,500 participatory performances and workshops, reaching over 120,000 people across the UK. In the past 39 years, more than 2 million people have benefited. 

Working with partners such as the National Care Forum, NAPA and CQC we are campaigning for greater access to music and the arts and have developed tools to ensure that participants in our programmes experience measurable therapeutic, social and emotional benefits.  We recently led the Choir in Every Care Home project in partnership with the Sidney de Haan Research Centre and Sound Sense.
