"Transforming lives through inspiring musicians." LMN works with a very diverse range of people who rarely, if ever, have the opportunity to experience live music. It takes very special skills to be able to use music to engage people who face difficulties in communicating, cut off from the joy and pleasures of participating and sharing with others. Their musicians are trained to put the needs and responses of the participants at the center of everything they do. Working with LMN gives their musicians the ability to perform with a deeper level of engagement throughout their careers.
