Project case studies
We invest in music-making projects where they’re needed most, with over 350 taking place nationwide each year. Read about some of the projects we’ve funded and the difference our investment has made to the organisations running them – and the young people taking part.
Many of Rosewood’s students face a lot of barriers to ‘traditional’ forms of music-making. The school’s partnership with SoCo Music Project has had a hugely positive impact for everyone involved.
Bristol-based OpenUp Music has helped to transform music-making for young disabled people nationwide with its ‘Open Orchestras’ programme.
Youth Music is currently supporting a three-year national project run by CLIC Sargent for young musicians aged 16-24 who’ve had a cancer diagnosis.
Fairbeats has been working with young people from various backgrounds including refugee, asylum seeking and new migrant families since 2009.
The Power of Music is a project run by 7E Youth Academy in Birmingham. They’re a community organisation working with some of the most at-risk young people in the city.
The hub realised that opportunities for music-making in the county’s special schools were patchy at best. The resulting project is a fantastic demonstration of what musical inclusion looks like in practice.
More Music’s LYVE project gives young vocalists the chance to perform together and develop their singing skills, whatever their previous experience.
Every Youth Music project measures its impact, helping us build a unique national overview.
