NYMAZ is a youth music development charity which champions the transformative potential of music for children and young people. We know that music has the power to change lives – it can raise aspirations, enable personal and social development, and enhance career prospects. Working with our trusted partners, we deliver high quality music-making activities across North Yorkshire to children and young people in challenging circumstances, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). We are also committed to strengthening the sector through workforce development, building strategic partnerships and advocating for the benefits of participatory music.

NYMAZ coordinates an SEND Music Network for professionals using music in SEND settings.
