Daisi is taking action to remove the barriers for young people’s access to music making. Ensuring that musical opportunities are available, accessible and inclusive to Devon and Torbay’s most in need young people. Developing partnerships and sustainable models of practice to ensure that these opportunities continue into the future.

“I had no confidence when I first came into the room, but became more comfortable during the session as I was allowed to be creative and be myself.”

Evidence shows that music-making is a strong contributor to young people’s personal and social development. It can help them to realise their potential within and outside education, and to deal with some of the big issues facing them today –  including mental health, isolation, youth violence and social inequality.

But despite this, and the fact that young people say music is central to their lives, too many are missing out on music-making because of who they are, where they live, what they are going through, or the lack of diversity of opportunities.

By embedding inclusive ways of working throughout music education, we can all make sure that no young person misses out.

Musically inclusive practice involves making sure young people’s music is HEARD:
