Our Work

Music for Youth is a national youth arts charity working to provide young people aged 21 and under across the UK with free, life-changing performance and progression opportunities, regardless of background or musical style.

Established in 1970, our mission is simple: we believe that music, and the chance to participate in high-quality musical activities, should be open to every young person.

Music for Youth is about nurturing not only the next generation of musical talent, but the next generation full stop. Whether you're a violinist, or beatboxer, a young person who's never had the chance to experience live music, or the leader of a primary school choir just starting out, we have something for you, or for the young people you work with. We pride ourselves on being open, accessible, and welcoming, so don't be shy.
