The Dorset Rural Music School is a music charity that believes in the potential of music to be life-enhancing, increase life chances, and even be life-changing.

Your donation today will help us deliver our ambitious programme of work with schools and communities across Dorset, support and nurture talented musicians and work with outstanding musicians and creatives now and in the future.
With your help, we can create enriching musical experiences for everyone.

As a charity, we rely upon the support of generous individuals.  We need your help to realise our work in communities and schools and to continue to support the musical aspirations of the people who learn with us.
