Strictly Music Education

Mus Ed has got the moves...

Welcome to the September 2017 edition of the Yorkshire Youth & Music bulletin!

Yes, folks, we haven't escaped the fact that Strictly Come Dancing is back once more to grace our television screens. And because we feel inclined to move our feet (and because I reckon we all need a bit of an antedote to the back-to-school blues), this month's bulletin is all about shaking a tail feather...

We're dancing in the street to the tune of your news and views, folks! Send it to us on facebooktwitter or via and we'll do our utmost to spread the word.

All the best,


Twisting the night away on behalf of the team at Yorkshire Youth and Music

YY&M's training takes place in direct connection with the needs of our projects

Please take a look at our current projects for the types of work we're doing and the young people we're working with now. And feel free to contact us if you want to get involved!
