TEMPO Fund (Financial Assistance)

Our vision is a borough where every child can find their first notes, make progress and flourish as a young musician.

As a registered charity, we recognise that children and young people may face many barriers to participation in the arts and music. The TEMPO Fund Discount Scheme aims to ensure that financial hardship does not prevent any child from receiving instrumental tuition from us. 

Financial Assistance

Parents/guardians may apply for financial assistance via our TEMPO Fund Discount Scheme or one of our partner funds, subject to eligibility.

Charitable Partners

We are proud to have partnered with other charitable organisations that share our values for music education. By working together, we are able to support more young people to access provision, regardless of the barriers they may face.

Special Projects & Music Awards

The TEMPO Fund aims to ensure we realise our vision for Moving Music Forward in Merton for every child. We are committed to ensuring that our work supports our three charitable pillars of: Transparency & Visibility; Community & Partnerships; and Equity & Access.

We have ambitious plans to further widen the reach of the TEMPO Fund. MMF has a long history of planning and delivering Special Projects and events for Merton school children, which we will continue to do long in the future with support from the TEMPO Fund. 

Over the coming year, we plan to develop a series or Music Awards & Scholarships to support access to music for historically under-represented groups. Specifically, we aim to support young people of the Global Majority, young people who are neurodivergent, have additional needs or SEND, care-experienced young people (including Young Carers) and youth members of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

TEMPO: Training, Education, Musical Progression and Opportunity.
