About Wigmore Hall Learning

Since 1994, Wigmore Hall's renowned Learning programme has been giving people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to take part in creative music making, engaging a broad and diverse range of people through in-person and online creative projects, concerts, workshops and resources.

We are passionate about the impact music can have on our lives and on our society, and three core values lie at the heart of our programme: creativity, collaboration and equality. These values reflect the spirit of chamber music, and we embody them through quality, co-created music making, through which every voice is heard and equally valued.

We collaborate with a range of community, education, arts, health and social care organisations, working in partnership to engage people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take part.

Music for Life is a pioneering programme for people living with dementia and their families, friends and carers, founded by Linda Rose in 1993 and led by Wigmore Hall since 2009. The programme encompasses a wide range of projects and events in care settings, community settings, online and at Wigmore Hall itself including:

  • Singing with Friends, a weekly choir (taking place on Tuesdays) for families living with dementia taking place at Wigmore Hall and online, in partnership with Royal Academy of Music and Resonate Arts
  • Creative, improvisation-based projects in residential care settings, including projects in partnership with Jewish CareCreative
  • Creative, improvisation-based projects with people with young onset dementia and their families and carers
  • Concerts and creative workshops at Wigmore Hall and other venues for people living independently/at home in partnership with Royal Academy of Music and Resonate Arts
  • An online project for people living with a rare dementia in partnership with Royal Academy of Music and UCL Rare Dementia Support
  • Training and development opportunities for musicians, and training programmes for organisations developing work inspired by Music for Life
