Music for Youth’s Music Mentors are a highly valued part of our work and play a vital role as the face of the organisation at events and beyond.
Our Music Mentors are the ‘eyes and ears’ of Music for Youth, feeding back on performance standards, making recommendations for progression opportunities within our programme, giving expert advice via our new ‘Mentor on Call’ scheme; and contributing to the development of specific programmes and resources.
Role of a Music Mentor
The role of the Music Mentor is crucial in ensuring that all of our events and projects feel supportive for all participants and are a celebration of hard work and achievement at every level.
A Music for Youth Mentor is:
Music for Youth works with young people and music leaders reflecting all backgrounds and all musical styles from classical to jazz, and from world through to urban and electronic music. Therefore, we need a pool of Music Mentors who reflect that wide range of music, backgrounds, and approaches to learning, to ensure we can offer both credible and meaningful feedback.
