Welcome to Sound Sense – the UK professional association for community musicians

#TTCM2020: Join the Conversation

We're excited to be meeting with colleagues from across the UK and beyond at our Training the Community Musician 2020 symposium this week. Hosted at the beautiful Laban Building in Deptford, TTCM is a partnership between Sound Sense, University of Aberdeen, Trinity Laban, Edinburgh Youth Music Forum and Sound Connections.

Just like our 2019 symposium, the event will feature guest speakers, Open Space facilitation and presentations to empower the community music community to discuss issues that matter to them. You can follow the event and add your voice on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
