Our mission: To transform the lives of children, young people and their communities through the power of music making, as part of the international Sistema movement.

Our vision: In 5 years, we aim for Sistema England to be a recognised leader in the global ‘music for change’ field, through enabling both high ‘Musical Return on Investment’ and high Social Return on Investment (SROI) for children and young people.

Our aims: 

  • Empower children and young people to become agents of their futures and global citizens
  • Enable children and young people to make great music and art together
  • Increase the workforce of engaging and effective teaching artists
  • Strengthen the community of ‘music change makers’ to spread best practices

Sistema England is a member of the Cultural Learning Alliance, a collective of committed individuals and organisations working to ensure that all children and young people have meaningful access to culture.
