LMN is organised through a network of seven branches across the UK, in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. LMN Scotland is registered as a separate charity in Scotland.

The charity's trustees, who take final responsibility for the general and financial wellbeing of the scheme, are the Board of Trustees under the Chairmanship of Sir Vernon Ellis.

For information on open positions with our Board of Trustees, please see our Jobs & Opportunities page.

Each Trustee is associated with an area, and in turn, chairs the area's advisory committee.*

Each area is run by a Director, who may have a part-time Project Manager or Administrator, as required.

The team of Directors is headed by the Executive Director, Evan Dawson.

LMN works with around 350 individual musicians in any one year, based all around the country.

We are fortunate to be able to call on our distinguished list of alumni - musicians who have worked with us in the past and have gone on to forge successful national and international careers in the music industry.

*In Scotland, the Governor serves as the Chairperson for the LMN Scotland Board of Directors.
