Leeds Conservatoire Futures

At Leeds Conservatoire, our mission is to educate and inspire the next generation of young musicians, performers and storytellers.

Leeds Conservatoire Futures is a FREE three-year scheme available to primary, secondary and FE providers, both in the UK and internationally, and aims to raise aspirations and attainment in music and performing arts.
