Tileyard Studios and Youth Music announce charity partnership

Youth MusicTileyard Studios has partnered with national charity Youth Music to help support young people in challenging circumstances through music.

The London studio has pledged to raise funds and create awareness of the charity among its community of artists and clients.

Youth Music’s aim is to ensure that every child is able to access music–making opportunities regardless of circumstances.

Through almost 400 music projects around the country, it helps over 75,000 children every year, many of whom face significant challenges in their lives such as disability, special educational needs, poverty, rural isolation or living in care.

The charity supports projects exploring every genre and style of music, from beatboxing and bhangra, dubstep and drum ’n’ bass to jazz and classical.

Matt Griffiths, Youth Music chief executive, said: ‘Many artists and professionals within the music industry have shown an admirable dedication to charitable giving in the past, but few are aware that they could channel their philanthropic effort into creating music-making opportunities.

‘These could help to transform the lives of many more young people in challenging circumstances. We really appreciate that Tileyard are offering to raise funds and helping us to bring our work to the attention of a new audience within the industry.’

Tileyard Studios manager Nick Keynes said: ‘We’re very pleased to support Youth Music which does such great work giving thousands of young people the chance to make music and achieve their creative potential.

‘We look forward to working together towards achieving our shared vision that no child should be prevented from having the opportunity to develop their musical creativity by reason of their personal or family circumstances.’

Youth Music is supported by Arts Council England, People’s Postcode Lottery and charitable donations.
