Links

Below are a number websites that tie in with some of the themes of Inspiration Jukebox. Some are about using music to improve your own life and some about improving the lives of others. There are also a range of more general sites.

I am not specifically recommending any of them but I do hope that you find them useful.

(This is also an opportunity to share your site with the people using this website. If you are interested email me at mail@inspirationjukebox.com  and link this website to your own. If I think it's appropriate I'll add your site as soon as I can. At the moment most of the sites are about the UK but I'm happy to add ones relevant to other countries too. Cheers.)
