Youth Music

The National Foundation for Youth Music is seeking applications from organisations experienced in longitudinal and action research studies to support the evaluation of a new initiative called Exchanging Notes.

Last month Youth Music was delighted to have 240 people join us for our first breakfast seminar: Fresh Thinking for Music Education. Guest speakers from outside the music education sector were invited to share their insights on young peoples’ music-making.

Youth Music launched its new visual identity yesterday. If your music-making project is funded by Youth Music, there are new logos for you to use on all your materials.

Update from Matt Griffiths, Executive Director.

Rather than thinking about divisions between 'formal' and 'non-formal' music making, we should be collaborating to harness children's passion.

Fame is not the only measure of success in the music business.

The roadblock standing in the way of young people's musical progression is not just a lack of funds. Sometimes it’s the adults who are supposed to be helping them.

Matt Griffiths from Youth Music shares his thoughts on being the 'new guy' in town.

If you are based in Devon or Torbay, join Daisi’s Soundwaves network and help bring the transformative power of music to the children and young people most in need.

We are seeking to follow up our recent research into Supporting the North East Music Education Workforce by finding out more about music-based learning with Children in Challenging Circumstances (CCCs): those who provide this and the people and organisations who employ and/or commission them.

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.
