Sound Connections exists to create change. We work across the music community to achieve inclusion, equity and social justice with young people.

We focus on four strands of work

  1. Youth Voice and Participation
  2. Training and professional development
  3. Advocacy
  4. Consultancy

Together, these strands ensure that all children and young people age 0 to 25 can access music opportunities and progression routes.

Early Years

Early years work

Improving the quality of provision and status of Early Years music across the sector. Through the delivery of projects, training, research and networking we are working to change policy, support activity and raise awareness of the importance of music in a child’s early years.
