Before starting a music project with young people draw upon your own skills, skills of your team, industry professionals and any experiences you may have in music. This will make the consultation process much easier as you know what skills and abilities you have and the opportunities you can offer young people. A consultation should also happen with young people to establish the type of music projects they want to be involved in.

Consultation Ideas

  • Online Surveys
