The millennial gap: Tips for recruiting younger members

Struggling to recruit younger members? In this guidance, reprinted from the Autumn 2016 issue of Highnotes, Making Music’s Youth Engagement Manager Xenia Davis has some suggestions.

The biggest barrier to young people joining music groups isn’t repertoire, or classical music being perceived as ‘stuffy’, or the age profile of the group.

Youth engagement resources

Many music groups tell us they find it challenging to attract younger members. With the help of a generous legacy from lifelong choral singer Pauline Thompson, we have been able to compile a bank of resources aimed at helping you to reach out to under-35 year olds.

We'll continue to add to these resources, but in the meantime if you think we're missing something that would be helpful for groups like yours, or if you have any questions,  just get in touch

Safeguarding

When it comes to a broad topic like safeguarding it can be difficult to know where to start. To help we've produced a range of resources (including a template policy) and can help arrange DBS checks for you. We'll continue to add to these, but in the meantime if you think we're missing something that would be helpful for groups like yours, do please let us know.

Information and advice event (Luton): Growing your membership (with a focus on under 35s)

It's the perfect time of year to start thinking about recruiting new members for the autumn term. Many groups have told us that they want to be able to engage better with young people, and thanks to a legacy left to us by Pauline Thompson, we’ve been able to develop a bank of ideas that can help!

 

Come along and find out more about the research we’ve done, and how you can use it to help your group reach more young people.
