Music Education

on the hoof...!

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

Following on from the theme of last month's bulletin (and avoiding the trap of doing yet another Halloween themed newsletter this time of year), this month is all about hoofing! And yes, folks, we know it's a tenuous link, but we'd like to politely ask you to dismount your high horses and prepare for a rip-roaring galloping through those puns...

And as for your news... don't feel the need to dressage it up! Just send it to us on facebooktwitter or via (although we prefer to hear it via the horse's mouth, of course).

All the best,


Trotting on, with unbridled enthusiasm,
on behalf of the team at Yorkshire Youth and Music
Yorkshire Youth and Music training
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!
