ABOUT YOUTH MUSIC
Youth Music’s vision is that, one day; life-changing music-making will be available to all children and young people. We’re doing our very best to make that vision a reality. (www.youthmusic.org.uk)
Each year more than 350 Youth Music projects are happening across England. That’s around 83,000 children and young people regularly making music.
We invest in music-making projects where they’re really needed. Bringing opportunities for children to learn a new musical genre in a town where not much happens. Supporting a ground-breaking initiative in a deprived part of a city. Responding to difficult challenges like young people at risk of radicalisation.
