HMDT Music creates inspiring arts projects to enrich learning and transform lives.
Dedicated to breaking down barriers to participation, we offer all young people and their communities, particularly those with the least engagement, sustained artistic programmes together with life-changing performance opportunities to increase skills, raise aspirations and discover the joys of creativity.
Working with world class artists and leading experts, HMDT Music, twice winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Education and the 2020 Music and Drama Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre, increases access to high quality musical experiences by commissioning new performance works created through an artistic fellowship between artists and participants, developing resources, creating enduring partnerships, and sustaining an extensive outreach programme to schools and the community in areas of significant disadvantage and deprivation.
We create education projects and productions of the highest quality in the belief that everyone should have access to the very best that the arts can offer.
We respond to the needs of individuals and communities by linking people and art forms in imaginative ways; challenging audiences and allowing artists to take creative risks. We strive to be courageous by highlighting and sharing untold stories, cultures and historic events, building awareness and celebrating the voices and dignity of those who would otherwise not be heard.
We foster a strong sense of community and personal growth by creating arts projects, which raise aspirations and expectations.
Diversity is at the heart of everything we stand for and believe in. We are committed to creating inclusive and accessible projects exploring a variety of music styles, genres and art forms, which value the people and communities with whom we work.
