Take Note

Take Note was a commission from Wiltshire Music Connect Music Education Hub to undertake a Youth Voice consultation with children and young people across the county. Using focus groups, case studies, online and written questionnaires, almost 800 children, young people, parents and carers were consulted about music making in Wiltshire. The key findings and recommendations are being used by the Hub in their strategic planning.

“Music is the best thing I do. My favourite memories are centred around music, as well as my closest friends met through it. Writing and performing is an incomparable experience and I am so grateful that it is part of my life”.  (Focus group participant – aged 16)

Early Years Music Mapping and Consultation

The Early Years Music Mapping and Consultation was commissioned by Wiltshire Music Connect, to help them consider what the role of the Hub could be in supporting early years music, and that any action or strategy was responsive to local needs.  I mapped current early years music provision in the county through desk research and online surveys.  Consultation with music specialists who work with under 5’s, early years practitioners and teachers used structured interviews and questionnaires to identify priorities and issues for music making.
