Youth Music, based on research by Birmingham City university | Exchanging Notes Report
Date Created: 29th May 2019
Exchanging Notes was a four-year action research programme (Sept 2014 – July 2018), pioneering new partnerships between schools and music providers who normally work in out-of-school settings.
This programme worked with 974 young musicians, 72 of whom were tracked across the four years. The findings from the research demonstrate that music in schools has the potential to re-engage young people in education, develop their confidence, resilience and self-belief, and create a more positive attitude to learning.
