I'm dreaming of a
Music Education Christmas

(let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!)

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

We hope you're not as cold as ice, what with the recent flurries, and even though the weather outside is frightful, let us warm your music education cockles with this month's offerings...

Don't get caught in a tenth avenue freeze out! Send your news to us on facebook, twitter or via!

Sadly, we don't accept news via snowball...

All the best,


Walking in a Winter Wonderland
