On Friday we published the interim evaluation of Youth Music's Exchanging Notes programme, designed to foster collaboration between classroom teachers and community music leaders, and to increase young people's engagement. Below is a press release highlighting the key findings, along with a link to the evaluation report.

Every child has the potential to one day lead an orchestra or win an Oscar, but exclusion starts at a young age. A pro-active approach is needed for change to occur.

We're now three years into the National Plan for Music Education. Here's my thoughts on what needs to happen in the next phase.

The report by Sound Sense contains an evaluation of the three-year programme and recommendations for the next steps in working together to create a musically inclusive England.

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.
