Youth Music has published a new research report which explores ways to engage ‘hard-to-reach’ parents in early years music-making (EYMM). It was undertaken by the Institute for Policy Studies in Education at London Metropolitan University after feedback from music projects involved in Early Years work suggested that they were struggling to engage certain parent groups.

We launched this Early Years Group because we are keen to pull together and engage with the conversations, ideas and questions from the Early Years sector. We know that many Youth Music Network members are involved with music-making projects for children under five and are very passionate about their work. Now we felt it was a good time to launch this group because of the new research Youth Music published and because there is so much going on in the Early Years sector.

We invite you to join this group, whether you are working directly with young children aged 0-5 years, or are involved in the Early Years sector in the wider sense, either as a project manager or an academic for example, and participate in the lively conversations we are hoping to host here. We are going to be posting blogs and engaging in conversations too but welcome you to post blogs or resources and start conversations about Early Years music-making.
