The Earthsong programme is a five-year initiative between Bristol Music Trust and the Earthsong Foundation that will create access to music education opportunities for 4,500 children and young people across Bristol, with ambitions to transform the national understanding of the importance of music education.
I designed a longitudinal research and evaluation study to track the impact of these opportunities on the children and young people’s learning and development, facilitating the development of a Theory of Change, evaluation framework, and data collection tools and processes. Over the duration of the programme, this study will use a mixed-methods approach to process and outcomes evaluation, including use of questionnaires, focus groups, interviews, observation visits/learning walks, and case studies. Following the evaluation design and set-up, Bristol Music Trust will receive data collection, analysis, reporting, and critical friend support from Sound Connections.
This project was delivered as an associate with Sound Connections.
