Mission Statement


Everyone Matters offers a wealth of carefully targeted, cost-effective music projects to schools and the wider community.

“Music for a while shall all your cares beguile” is the lovely opening phrase of a song by Henry Purcell. We chose these words to sit under our name because they seem so beautifully to sum up the mission of Everyone Matters to take live music and music-making to people of all ages who cannot readily access it themselves.

  • Everyone Matters strives to work collaboratively with those it serves.
  • Everyone Matters aims to bring music to people of all ages, from pre-school children in playgroups and nurseries to older people in nursing homes, day care centres and other community venues.
