A short post to share a range of promotional as well as evaluation/practice-sharing stories and case studies about work with young people in music. Many of the case studies and activities were supported through Youth Music’s Musical Inclusion programme.
It’s been a privilege to talk to these music leaders about their work and hear the stories of the young people they work with and the difference that music has started to make to their lives and futures. Thanks to everyone who I spoke to and all who’ve been involved.
