The day includes:

  • – Lots of activities which will support your creative work with young people
  • – Developing musical ideas – singing and playing – listening and composing

Yorkshire Youth and Music is a community music education company working across the whole of Yorkshire. We provide music projects for children and young people and train the adults who work with these young people across the Yorkshire region. We are Youth Music’s Musical Inclusion grant-holders for West and South Yorkshire. YYM is Matrix accredited for our advice and guidance services.

This session is part of YYM’s Musical Inclusion professional development programme.

Musical Inclusion is one of Youth Music’s funding modules. The aim of the module is to ensure opportunities exist for children and young people in challenging circumstances to access and progress through high-quality music making across England. Organisations funded to deliver this module are required to have an overview of what music making activity exists in their region, and how they will go about working with regional and local strategic partners to address any gaps in music making provision for children and young people in challenging circumstances. This includes the provision of a range of professional development opportunities relevant to professionals working with these children and young people.
