How does Music Education

shape up?

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

In this month's newsletter, I have confidence that we are shaping up (so confident, the song is our latest Listen of the Month!).

We're celebrating the fantastic feedback we have received from both children and teachers taking part in our In Tune project. Overwhelming evidence suggests that children's confidence (taking part in music and in other school subject areas) has improved as a direct result of being a part of In Tune. It's definitely the shape of things to come for us here at YY&M!

So without further ado... let's square the hypotenuse and get on with this month's shapely offerings...

Don't put your news in a heart shaped box... send it to us on facebook, twitter or via!

All the best,


Remembering that it's hip to be square

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

If you would like to access training in music education with children in challenging circumstances, we might be able to help.

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!
