Youth Music

A highlight of July’s International Society for Music Education (ISME) conference in Glasgow was a well-received performance by the Lancashire Youth Vocal Ensemble (LYVE), a project supported by Youth Music. LYVE included their own unique spin on the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen, part of the repertoire from the BBC’s Ten Pieces creative classical music programme. We recently spoke to Emma Williams, singing leader at LYVE Lancaster, to find out more about the project.

Happy birthday Arts Award! Here at Youth Music we're big fans of the accreditation, and encourage and support the projects we invest in to offer it. It's a fantastic way for young people's achievement in music-making to be recognised. From Saturday 2 - Sunday 10 July it's Arts Award Week, with activities taking place nationwide. Here's all the info you need to know...

Drake Music, one of Youth Music’s strategic partners, have shared their expertise on music-making with disabled young people, in a new version of our reflective practice tool.

One of the most exciting parts of working at Youth Music is hearing the music created by young people from the projects we support. And we love to share this music with our supporters: it’s one of the best ways for us to demonstrate what our charity does via our website, social media, newsletters and other communications channels. However, if we share tracks where young people express themselves freely, do we run the risk of upsetting those who object to the language used or the subject matter?

We’re Youth Music. We’re a national charity investing in music-making projects for children and young people facing challenging circumstances.

We believe everyone should have the chance to make music.

Our projects help young people develop musically, of course, but they have personal and social outcomes too.

We know that those facing difficulties - economic problems, lifelong conditions, tough circumstances or behavioural issues - are often the ones who get the most out of music-making.

Youth Music offers meaningful chances to young people in complicated situations.

With your support, we can make a genuine difference to many more young lives.
