• Welcome to Kidenza



Our mission: to shatter the misconception that orchestral music is stuffy and inspire every child from every walk of life to listen to and maybe be involved in making music for the whole of their life. Essentially, inspiring tomorrow’s musicians or at the very least, tomorrow’s audiences.

Kidenza aims to break down barriers to orchestral music for children of all ages and backgrounds. We use music to inspire, to increase confidence and to improve wellbeing, using a child-centred, creative approach to music education.

As with any charity, funding and support is vital for our survival and this has never been truer than this year. Please consider donating to help subsidise our work in schools

We are Hiring!

We are actively seeking two new trustees to strengthen and diversify the board of Kidenza.

What do people say about Kidenza?

“I think the concert was absolutely incredible, I have been telling all my friends about it! It was so informative and fun for the children. We bought the cd of Peter and the Wolf at the concert and my daughter listens to it constantly , always referring back to the instruments we saw.”

“Amazing concert! At the end I had children almost hyperventilating to tell me how much they wanted to learn an instrument.  They have never seen anything like that before.  Fantastic!” (Head of Music)
