What is the quality framework?
Youth Music’s quality framework, Do, Review, Improve is a tool to help you plan for and evaluate quality in your work. The resource contains:
- A list of quality criteria
- Glossary of key terms
- Organisational responsibilities to be considered in programme planning
- Links to further guidance and resources.
The quality framework can be used by anyone leading a music-making session with children and young people - it’s designed to be flexible and can be used in planning and reflection sessions, for peer observations, as an evaluation tool, or as part of your organisational training and induction.
As part of this suite of resources you'll find additional versions for working with disabled young people and with babies and toddlers, as well as real-life example of how the criteria look in practice.

This set of videos produced through ‘The Drama of Sound’ project (A Sightlines Initiative project funded by Youth Music) can provide some useful starting points for developing a child-centred approach to Early Years musicmaking.
