Changing Tunes uses music and mentoring to help people lead meaningful, crime-free lives

The difference we make

We enable our participants to experience the benefits of music-making. We support them to develop their creativity, confidence, self-esteem, hope, resilience, belonging, agency and mental health. Here’s what one of our beneficiaries says about her work with us: “I want to thank Changing Tunes for being part of my journey. It’s been 6 years since we first met. Your support changed my path. My entire way of thinking, acting and believing has changed completely. I still play guitar and write songs"

Distance learning resources

We've been adapting our services throughout the pandemic to support our beneficiaries and partners through this challenging time. Our latest initiative is a suite of distance learning resources, covering: BEGINNERS GUITAR SKILLS - VOCAL & SINGING SKILLS - RHYTHM SKILLS - MUSIC THEORY - RAPPING. Created by our skilled musicians, these resources will support skills development & mental health. We're rolling them out to prisons across the UK. Contact us at [email protected] to find out more
