Franchise With Us
Your rewarding career delivering interactive music-based sessions in your community is waiting...
Musical Moments was born from our founder Beckie’s own personal experience with dementia; her Nana was living with dementia at the time and she discovered the amazing effect music had on her communication, happiness and general well-being.
The organisation is now in the capable hands of our Managing Director Maggie who started her Musical Moments journey as a Franchisee. We have a team of franchisees across the UK and have a great demand for the service. Every element of the company and the brand has been hand-crafted by our small but passionate team, making our core values personal, ethical and honest. Ultimately we want to enable more musicians to deliver quality music activities to those who need it most.
Why a Franchise?
Established in 2011, we know that our format at Musical Moments is a proven and successful model with many of our current franchisees taking on staff to meet demand.
We are frequently contacted by care homes across the UK for our services, but due to the nature of the work, locality is essential. This is why we operate our franchise model and Musical Moments needs you as our clients want to book directly with their local session leader.
We’ve spent the last five years constructing and perfecting a business model that is ready to replicate in all areas of the country. So whether you want a full-time career or can just commit three hours a week we want to hear from you!
"I joined Musical Moments as a Franchise owner in August 2022 and it’s the best thing I have ever done! I am in control of my own work and create my own schedule, including time for social commitments too, which is perfect for me. The training was so helpful and gave me a massive kick start into the business, I now have regular weekly and monthly clients. Musical Moments is a supportive community within itself and I can’t wait to grow my franchise and touch many peoples lives with music"

"I joined Musical Moments as a franchise owner in September 2023 and it is the best decision I have made! Before this I was a primary school teacher, and I now have the flexibility to choose my own working hours, along with having a work-life balance so I can do the school run and spend quality time with my family. I love how music has such a positive impact on residents wellbeing and I leave my sessions feeling energised and excited for the next one. I can't wait to continue building my franchise and bringing joy to more people's lives through music."
