Founded LMFL in spring 1997, LMFL (Language and Music for Life) is a unique organisation committed to providing training in both music and foreign languages to students of all ages.   here is our website

 The first LMFL summer course was held in August 1997 and has grown in size and quality ever since, and we run courses abroad in France, Andorra and Italy.

While remaining a partnership in the UK, on December 15th 2011 LMFL became a non-profit organisation (ONG) in Schengen Continental Europe, registration number W3221002407

(any donation from European residents entitles them to a 66% rebate on their next tax return)

 Our music and language project functions in a context which is rich in individual ability, motivation, language, culture and generations.

 Music Learning is not to be restricted to its manifestation in performance, though this is an essential part, but is to be intimately linked to the dynamics of the whole individual who is able to learn while changing, and able to change while learning.

Our linguistic premise: a language is learned not just for its own sake but also for a purpose. Language is used to communicate, to organise music making with others, to facilitate professional development and because we want to enjoy exchanges with those whom we have chosen to be with, and like, and because we don’t want to live like “foreigners” in an English-speaking environment.

We learn a language to live and, as the name of our organisation puts it, to survive.

We have had to cancel our advanced course in Firenze Italy following the ban by Italian Government on public meetings and the closure of all Conservatories and Concert Halls.

We had to forfeit expenses incurred in organising this type of event.

We need to be able to wipe the slate clean to make it possible next year.

 We are not sure at this moment - depending on the British Government’s decisions - to be allowed to hold our course in Wales.

 Our teachers are deprived of concerts and may be deprived of working on the course. They are in a difficult situation.

 We need your help to keep LMFL alive, as expenses occur day in day out - not only 2 months per year - and expenses are paid for by dispensing our courses hence  cancellations are a financial tragedy. Our insurance covers damage and fires but not cancellation in the event of a pandemic!

 If you think that Music is Life and that it is important for like-minded participants to meet once a year and make friends for life please help us to raise enough to make it possible to carry on .

I am convinced that LMFL will come out of this crisis and even better, with your help.

I ask you to share this fund-raising venture with those who you think may want to help.
