Song, Rhyme & Playtime - An early years music project based at Bideford Bay Children's Centre

Music for Alice has opened a new round of funding for youth organisations and groups using music for health and rehabilitation purposes. 

 

A project that looks to bring together Downs Syndrome support groups through musical collaboration; training and mentoring for young female musicians; music technology with children and young people in challenging circumstances; and music and play in palliative care, all make up Sound Connections Innovate programme 2017.

We are proud to announce that the 2017-18 Sound Connections Early Years Apprentice Programme is now open for applications.

On the cusp of an exciting new project!

We wanted to share with you some observations from a Music Leader who has been working with Cymaz Music for the last few months. As part of the induction process for Music Leaders they must observe other sessions, assist on sessions and then they may be ready to take on leading on their own. Here is what Alex wrote about his experiences and observations of working with Cymaz Music in Cornwall.

Today we are pleased to publish the application guidelines for the second round of Youth Music’s Fund C grant awards. Successful organisations will play a key strategic role in helping Youth Music achieve a musically inclusive England.
