Developing best practice in community music.

Sound Sense is a membership organisation for community musicians in professional practice. To ensure we support our members in as many ways as we can, we work to keep up to date on the latest developments in community practice. Where we can, we also actively engage in the debate, aiming to improve practice through our advocacy and policy work.

On this page you can find information on our work on the Music Education Council, with ArtWorks Alliance and A Choir in Every Care Home. You will also be able to find out about any CPD, training and networking events coming up in your area.
