There are many young people who have barriers preventing them from taking part in music-making which is right for them. Our work focuses on children and young people experiencing challenging circumstances.
We have extensive evidence which proves that music-making brings positive personal, social and musical benefits for children and young people. The projects we support engage children through an
extremely diverse range of genres, styles and techniques.
Here is a selection of stories about the impact projects supported by Youth Music have had on children and young people and their families and carers, as well as the music leaders and youth workers who support them.
You can also read the evidence underpinning our work in our latest Impact and Learning Reports.
Kallel has loved music for as long as she can remember, and has been writing songs for almost as long. Attending SWIPE sessions has improved her musical skills, and changed her life in other ways too.
