Why should I participate at WKMT London Music Festival 11.03?

Early intervention is key to unlocking children’s life-long resilience, personal and social potential, health and happiness, – and musical engagement sits right at the core. We owe it to all of our children and young people to provide meaningful, high-quality musical opportunities regardless of their personal circumstance. This we believe in. This we all aspire to achieve.
