The Education and Learning Committee has refocused the Dumfries and Galloway Council Children and Young People's Music Strategy consultation. This is being done in order to set the vision and ambition for the region to improve participation and achievement for our young people.

We want to find out what's important to you, what you think works well, and hear your ideas on how to make our music sector even better.

We also want your help to develop the strategy's draft vision and key themes which we are developing in discussion with representatives from the region's music sector and various stakeholders. We now wish to allow everyone to share their views.

The consultation phase ends on 8 October 2021 so don't miss your chance
to have your say.
