Music4U reaches across York, Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire and provides musical engagement and development opportunities for young people aged 0-25, particularly targeting those whose life circumstances make it difficult for them to otherwise access musical learning. The current Music4U project has developed from 14 years of experience as a Youth Music Action Zone and subsequently a Musical Inclusion provider.
There are five core outcomes at the heart of Music4U:
These outcomes are brought about through a vibrant and diverse programme of musical activities, spanning genres from DJ'ing and beatboxing to traditional African drumming, from Javanese gamelan to contemporary classical composition and beyond.
All practical activities are delivered by highly skilled community musicians and are tailored to the young people taking part, with opportunities for participants to gain accreditation such as the Arts Award. Legacy and continuity are particularly important and Music4U seeks to support young people to carry on their musical journeys beyond the end of each project.
The project also works to develop the sector, particularly through close partnership working with the three Music Education Hubs in the region.
Music4U is delivered in partnership between the National Centre for Early Music, Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and York Arts Education, and is funded by Youth Music.
