Young lives transformed through music

Music for Youth is a national youth arts charity working to provide young people aged 21 and under across the UK with free, life-changing performance and progression opportunities, regardless of background or musical style.
Established in 1970, our mission is simple: we believe that music, and the chance to participate in high-quality musical activities, should be open to every young person.

“Music for Youth has helped me grow as a musician by giving me opportunities that I have never experienced before.”

“MfY’s reputation is incredible. It is brilliant and I truly mean that! It has had a huge impact on our young people. Our pupils have special educational needs and do not get many opportunities to perform in fantastic venues. Through MfY we have managed to perform at the HMV Institute, the Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall twice! It’s so important, especially to the families. And it gives our young people increased self-esteem, inclusion, self-help skills, teamwork.”
