Youth voice & governance

To make a musically inclusive Gloucestershire a reality, children and young people must be part of
the process, and ‘youth voice’ is a term that’s used to describe this work.

news

Ongoing national research suggests that the hierarchy of musical genres and progression routes that exists, doesn’t wholly represent the interests, motivations and needs of many children and young people. Youth voice can play a powerful role in counteracting this.

The benefits?

  • Children and young people experience more positive personal, social and musical outcomes
  • We reach more children and young people, and what we offer to young people  is more diverse, representative and relevant
  • Children and young people are more committed and invested in music  
  • Policymakers, funders and commissioners are more committed and invested in music
