Live Music Now are recruiting new musicians from the jazz, world and folk traditions. We offer training and paid performances to musicians at the start of their professional career, working with diverse audiences who do not normally have access to high quality live music.
We're looking for brilliant artists who want to develop themselves professionally, and who have that spark and passion to share their music with a wider audience of older people and children with special needs.

Luzmira Zerpa, who was on the scheme 5 years ago, said: "I love Live Music Now, it's one of the most wonderful things I've done. It really shaped the way I do concerts because it helped me to have an awareness of the audience and take advantage of the importance of the interaction with them". Luzmira currently performs as a soloist and with her band Family Atlantica, whose latest release is out now.
