We are trying to find new instruments and equipment to help young people to make music in Bristol. We are looking for any instruments, old and new, music equipment, amps, stands, headphones, cables and money for us to buy used kit - alongside ideas for finding people who maybe interested.

We want to take this opportunity to update you on the progress of Arts Council England’s review of the National Foundation for Youth Music (Youth Music).

I came across two foundations this week at a London Funders network meeting that could be tapped by music makers working in the community.

In Harmony is a social development programme that aims to inspire and develop active, sustainable and cohesive communities using the power and disciplines of community-based orchestral music-making and learning.

Five individuals aged 18-30 will receive £30,000 and mentoring to support their creative practice for a year.

Returning from a very stimulating (and just a little bit exhausting) trip around the country, working with 200 people or so over the past two weeks, I felt it was a good time to collect and share some initial thoughts and reactions to where we are with all this evaluation and outcomes stuff.

Read about Youth Music's investment in the music education sector in the 2013-14 Impact Report, and the findings from projects the charity supports in the new Learning Report.

Hi - I'm looking into the possibility of getting funding to run a 4 week intensive project during summer 2015 to get local teenagers playing in a samba "bloco" at the Notting Hill Carnival.

Music for Alice has launched a new round of funding aimed at youth and health-related organisations.

Future Talent is now accepting applications for its one and three year music bursaries. The Charity is looking for gifted young musicians from anywhere in the UK, from low-income backgrounds. Each bursary includes: mentoring, career and general music advice, performance opportunities and a financial award.
