More Music is a community music organisation based in the seaside town of Morecambe in the North West.
Established in 1993 More Music works throughout Lancashire and beyond providing a year round series of projects that cover a breadth of musical activity involving people of all ages, abilities, cultures and backgrounds.
We run workshops, professional training, community festivals, live music nights, and a programme of classes that includes guitar, hand drumming and singing.
We also manage the Lancashire Youth Music Action Zone for Youth Music, who fund and facilitate music- making for young people up to the age of 18, particularly those living in areas of social and economic need.
In addition, More Music works with local schools and centres throughout the district, the county and the North West delivering Sing Up- the Music Manifesto's National Singing Programme.
More Music provides a series of year round projects that cover a breadth of music - making activity involving people of all ages and all backgrounds. More Music aims to build confidence and spirit in individuals and communities through creative arts activities particularly music.
In 2006 More Music was awarded the prestigious art06 award by Arts Council England in recognition of the vital role the organisation has played in helping build and transform communities. It is one of the longest running and most highly regarded community music and education organisations in the UK and is used by Arts Council England as a model of good practice.
