Youth Music Initiative awarded extra £10m

Scotland's Youth Music Initiative is set to continue following a funding grant.
Great deals on musical instruments

More children in Scotland will be able to develop their talents on musical instruments after a further £10 million of funding was agreed for the Youth Music Initiative (YMI) in Scotland.

As a result of the money, it will be able to maintain its work throughout 2011/2012.

YMI supports more than 300 projects each year, covering a variety of musical genres, teaching methods and age groups.

Culture minister Fiona Hyslop said she was delighted the scheme could continue to run.

"Since its inception in 2003, it has been a great success, providing numerous opportunities for children and young people across Scotland to get involved in music," she said.

Ms Hyslop explained teaching children to be creative on musical instruments helps them to become innovative, confident and resourceful in other areas of their lives.

According to a recent article in the Stirling Observer, playing an instrument can allow youngsters to develop important life skills.
