Your donation makes new music possible
We can't do it without your support
Sound and Music is the national charity for new music and we support composers of all ages to make and enjoy new music. Our work is creative, wide-ranging and inclusive.
Make a donation today to play your part in the future of new music
As a charity, we rely on a number of sources to fund the vital work that we do. As budgets tighten and demand for support increases, it’s becoming more important than ever to ensure we can guarantee the long-term future of our work.
Your contribution will provide life-changing composition workshops for young composers, give emerging artists the support they need to flourish, and ensure we can campaign for a more inclusive and equitable new music scene for all.
Your donation will make a real difference. Find out about the impact our work has had on some of the many composers we have supported.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Composition Summer School and in honour of our CEO Susanna Eastburn, we are fundraising for fully-funded bursaries to support young people to attend who face the greatest barriers to pursuing their love of creating music.
