As a registered charity, NMC connects listeners worldwide with the best new music from Britain and Ireland. Another significant strand of our work is Education. NMC takes new music into the classroom through a series of digital resources and in-person creative music-making projects.

Our digital resources are free to access, with the aim of increasing engagement with contemporary classical music for secondary school pupils. Resources range across composition, listening, and writing about music. 

When delivering in person projects, we target diverse communities and we work closely with local Music Education Hubs to best meet their needs. Projects are delivered free-of-charge to state school pupils, to benefit those who otherwise may not receive extra-curricular musical opportunities.
