Connecting young people with sound opportunities


About us

Amazing Musical Projects

We’re AMP, and we’re a youth music development charity.

We champion 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.

We work with trusted partners to deliver high quality music-making activities to those in challenging circumstances, including rural isolation and economic deprivation. We are here to strengthen and support the sector through workforce development and the building of strategic partnerships, and we advocate for the wide-ranging benefits of music-making. We’re proud to put youth voice, and young people themselves, at the heart of what we do.

Our story began in 2001, as NYMAZ, with the vision that all young people in North Yorkshire should have the opportunity to actively engage in music, regardless of their circumstances. We’re so proud of all we’ve achieved to date. The world has changed so much since we started our work, and so have we. And that’s why we’ve found our new name, AMP.
