Open Strings Music runs projects for people to connect and create through music-making – whatever your ability, you can play with us!

We are a Brighton (UK) -based social enterprise which has been running community music projects in the city and beyond since 2013. We offer participatory music as a tool for connection in a variety of community-based settings: for mental health, with older people, with people with learning disabilities, and with people with dementia and their carers.
