Part two of a reflection on a year of music making with young people in Rutland

Part one of a reflection of the year making music with young people in Rutland

I have often come across the struggle transitioning/adapting participants of small vocal/music workshops to larger ones...........All added ideas are welcome! 

If you are not taking impact capture seriously for the projects you are running then I believe you to be looking down the barrel of a funding gun. It amazes me how many organisations don't collect the simplest of data like attendance or any form of 'story' from their participants. Money is scarce and getting scarcer. Commissioner's and grant givers require evidence that what we do is effective. 

Commentary on Community Music often highlights a lack of methodologically sound evidence for the sectors work. To address this Noise Solution set out to quantify its impacts. 

Phill Howley, professional musician, producer and specialist in music engagement in challenging circumstances, blogs about Life on Shuffle, a creative music project for young people.

These are some notes on my experiences and reflections on being a trainee on the Hope Creative project so far, having attended 6 sessions since November 2015. I have been recording what we have done and where we have done it and how it was from my point of view.

Are you tired of constantly having to refer back to your funding application to check that you're on course with M&E or achieving and evidencing your outcomes? Have you ever had a funny feeling you've missed something but not quite sure what? Have you ever sat down to write an evaluation report and kicked yourself when you finally realised what you missed... but its too late?

This simple template could just help with some of your M&E headaches! Read on...

As part of the Our Orchestra project, we've been working with schools to develop a framework intended to help them hold external music providers / partners to account.

Hello!  Welcome to the Outcomes and Evalaution Group.

I thought it would be a good idea to set this up so we can exchange ideas, hints, and tips about anything to do with measuring outcomes and embedding strong evaluation practices in our projects and work in general.

It's really open to everyone to make of it what we will (although I will post the occassional tools or resources that inevitably land in my inbox and on my lap at meetings etc).

I think as evaluation geeks we are stronger together!
