  • Social media platforms do not have a shared purpose.Free speech is important. We wanted to provide a platform so anyone could have a voice.Network is part of Youth Music’s five year strategy.
  • Here is the Youth Music Network.Signup only takes a coupleof minutes.
  • Members from all over the country are coming together to discuss articles posted on the Network. Ideas are being exchanged. New contacts are being made.
  • Nick’s blog on Assistive Music Technology has been read more than 1000 times in a month. It’s really easy to add and share content on the Youth Music Network. And the audience isn’t just confined to England. We have many people from the States who are accessing the Network too.
  • The biggest success is that the Network is being driven by its users. Its not Youth Music posting all the content and resources. This provides a rich array of useful content and perspectives.
  • Evidence – provides you with a way to evidence the important role you have to play in music education. For those outside of music education (including funders) the Network provides a shop window to what is going on and how people are coming together for the benefit of children and young people.Building your profile – you, your project (s) and your organisation.
  • The Network has only been going since November last year and we want to continue taking a user-centred approach to improving the site. If you have any suggestions then drop us a line.
