About Youth Music

Music-making is life-changing.

Every year, we provide more than 75,000 young people with the opportunity to make music, helping them to overcome the challenges they face in their lives. Our music projects support young people to develop their creative and social skills, make positive contributions to their community and improve their wellbeing.

Our ongoing research allows us to identify the best ways to engage young people and drive fresh thinking in music education. We also provide a growing online community for thousands of music education professionals.

We know that many young people still need our help. Join us in our mission to give every child the chance to make music. Please donate today.

Our Vision

is that life-changing music-making is available to all children and young people.

Our Mission

is to be at the heart of children and young people’s music-making, identifying and investing in learning activities for those with least opportunity. We use our unique intelligence to drive fresh thinking across music education.
