Developing and supporting young people’s music – especially those who are disadvantaged – brings huge reward but also challenge. 

We know that as the needs of children and young people change, so too do the needs of those working with them – whether as teachers, workshop leaders, managers, producers, coaches or mentors.

Sound Connections’ 2020-21 programme focuses on:

  • Youth voice and participation
  • Music and social justice
  • Music in the early years
  • Diversifying the music education workforce

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to offer the majority of our training and networking events online until further notice. Read the blog about our 2020-2021 programme here (blog to come).

All of our events are subsidised with support from The National Foundation for Youth Music and the Rachel Baker Charitable Trust.
