Every Youth Music project measures its impact, helping us build a unique national overview.

Our projects help young people to develop musically, of course, and they have personal and social outcomes too. We support young people to build their confidence, resilience, and self-esteem. To meet different kinds of people, learn to trust each other, and make friends. To develop vital skills they need, get support to be able to face the world, and take control of their own lives.

Social outcomes

One of the best parts of making music is making music together. Singing in harmony, forming a band, drumming in a group. These activities can create the same sense of pride and euphoria as team sports – and no-one loses.

How music-making helps

We're constantly gathering evidence to understand how music-making helps young people, whatever the challenges they're facing. We've become experts on the benefits of music-making in different settings.
