CoMusica: What We Do
Funded by Youth Music, CoMusica works with a wide range of children and young people, including those not in education, employment or training (NEET), those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEN/D), looked after children (LAC) and foster and adoptive families.
CoMusica also trains professionals and organisations who want to engage and support young people through music and creative arts activity.
Our experienced team work alongside partners to support children and young people in reaching their full potential through: music technology and production; songwriting and singing; DJing and MCing; percussion, orchestral ensembles and instrumental groups.
Our partnerships with a diverse range of regional organisations include: Youth and Community Groups, Voluntary Organisations, Local Authorities, NHS, Youth Charities, Schools and Pupil Referral Units.
Engaging in music and creative arts helps to increase personal and social development, confidence, resilience and aspirations. Where appropriate, we also support children and young people in developing employability skills through NCFE qualifications and Arts Award.
