The Music Man Project is an award-winning, world record-breaking international music education service for children and adults with learning disabilities. It provides accessible music tuition leading to inspirational public performances through the singing, signing and playing of accessible musical instruments, using original repertoire written especially for the project.
The Music Man Project was founded by Churchill Fellow and Global Peace Ambassador for People with Disabilities, David Stanley BEM. Run by volunteers, the charity gives grants for accessible arts education, promotes equal access to performance, carries out research and raises awareness of the achievements of disadvantaged people in the arts.
The Music Man Project has launched regional teaching hubs in counties across England and in every nation of the UK. It has also reached communities thousands of miles away in South Africa, India, Nepal, USA and the Philippines. Regional projects are officially licenced for free, enabling them to use The Music Man Project brand and to access exclusive music, teaching resources and performance opportunities.
The Music Man Project explores how far the universal language of music can be used to free the constraints placed on people with a learning disability across the world, joining them together through song, country by country. Recent highlights include 2 variety concerts at the London Palladium in the West End, breaking a Guinness World Record, performing to members of the Royal Family, appearing in a major TV advertising campaign for the National Lottery (“3 is the magic number”) and presenting the UK’s largest ever celebration of accessible music-making: ‘Music is Magic at the Royal Albert Hall’ in front of an audience of 3000 people.
The Music Man Project is the subject of ground-breaking research at the Royal College of Music and has been commended by Prime Ministers, industry professionals, celebrities and OFSTED.
