The Sage Gateshead Young Musicians Programme (YMP) forms part of a wider Learning and Participation offer at the Sage Gateshead. YMP provides a range of opportunities for musicians aged between 4 and 19 years of age and encompasses three distinct strands (Weekend School; Studios and Specialist Tuition; and Youth Ensembles). Each of these has its own distinctive focus and constituency, whilst also forming part of a coherent whole. At the time of writing, there were 360 students taking part in all on-site YMP activities, with an additional 80 students learning off-site. The majority of students came from across the North East region, with a small number from further afield. In order to support participation, financial assistance and mean-tested bursaries were available from different sources. As part of the ongoing development of the Programme, a research team from the International Music Education Research Centre at the Institute of Education, University of London were invited to provide an external review of features of the Programme’s organisation and quality. In addition to reviewing documentation about the Programme, opportunity was taken to interview approximately 80 stakeholders, including tutors, operational staff, a number of parents and groups of students. Teaching was also observed over one weekend.
