To support our community of music creators we have gathered together relevant advice and information from the Academy, the music industry and Government.
We will continue updating this page as the situation develops. For support and advice you can visit our Support and Guidance page and coronamusicians.info. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns, or if there is information and resources you would like to see.
As well as providing advice we’re working hard with our partners across the music industry to lobby Government for music creators to be recognised in their response. We will provide updates about our lobbying, how you can get involved and what support from Government is available.
