The Black Lives in Music Mentoring Programme provides support for musicians of colour to enter professional ensembles.

We support the meaningful involvement of people of colour in grass roots musical tuition and activities as delivered through local Music Education Hubs.

Developing early relationships with conservatoires helps musicians to become audition ready, creates pathways into those establishments and supports their wellbeing.

Black Lives in Music wants to support mentees in realising their musical aspirations by actively providing vocational opportunities in all aspects of live music, including the areas of technical production, management, administration and performance.
