YY&M follows young people’s own musical aspirations and we employ the very best, multi-skilled music practitioners on our projects. We also offer training and support to adults who work with children and young people in a variety of settings and circumstances.
Our current projects include:
Children of women who are held in secure facilities should be offered specific provision that supports their development as babies and toddlers… and that’s exactly what our musical project achieves.
Young people’s mental health is an increasing concern. Using music through our specifically designed project has proven to be a good way to connect with young people in a way that feels comfortable to them.
We run creative projects in Youth Justice settings that directly contribute to rehabilitation and encourage young people to live secure, meaningful and socially responsible lives.
We’re making musical instruments accessible for deaf and hearing impaired young people around the region.
