Case Studies: Youth Music in Three Scottish Communities

Our research team at the University of Strathclyde are working on three case studies of youth music in Scottish communities. This will give the project in-depth analyses of the particular circumstances, opportunities and challenges that young people face with youth music in certain communities. 







Outline of project

A key strand of the What’s Going on Now? project involves the development  of in-depth case studies in three different geographical areas. Researchers from the University of Strathclyde are developing these three case studies in Glasgow (North East), Perth and Shetland.



This will involve a comprehensive mapping of music education opportunities for young people in each community with the aim to discover what inclusive music education is on offer for under 25 year olds.
