Benslow Music Trust is a charitable trust established to promote music education. The trust is based in the Benslow area of Hitchin in Hertfordshire, England, and primarily operates as an adult education college.

Under its trading name of Benslow Music, Benslow Music Trust operates a wide range of courses for non-professional instrumentalists and singers at all competency levels and also offers courses in music appreciation. Most are two- or three-day residential courses, but there are also day courses and longer summer schools. Courses take place all through the year both at weekends and in midweek.

The trust also promotes its own International Concert Series, with concerts held at the trust headquarters throughout the year. The President is Sir Peter Maxwell Davies CBE.

The trust is the parent charity for an instrument loan scheme now known as Benslow ILS which lends musical instruments to school and college students throughout the United Kingdom.
