Young People Introducing The Music

Jeunesses Musicales Sweden

Jeunesses Musicales Sweden gives the opportunity to young musicians to experience and play music and also to meet over national borders. We present, among other thing, Swedens oldest and widest music competition for young people, Musik Direkt.

Jenuesses Musicales Sweden is a part of Jenuesses Musicales International, wich is behind activities like World Youth Choir, World Youth Orchestra, the camps for young folk musicians, Ethno and the ”Imagine” festivals. (In Sweden named Musik Direkt)

Jeunesses Musicales Sweden was created in spring 2011 through a collaboration between our national ”Länsmusik” organisations.


The Blackboard Music Project is an international development and exchange project aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of concerts for Young Audiences in Europe. The project is a cooperation between ten different partner organisations - all members of Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) - represented in eight European countries. Levende Musik i Skolen (LMS) coordinates the project from their offices in Denmark.

The project encompasses three YAM Sessions (young audiences music conferences with live producing, the YAMAwards, keynotes, talks, workshops and live showcases) as well as six national YAM Showcases that will take place in the different partner countries up until the end of 2016. The events will allow Young Audiences professionals to meet for the exchange of ideas and inspiration as well as productions. The aim is to strengthen the international network, to share expertise and knowledge and to promote the international exchange of concerts for children and youth.

The project was launched in November 2014 in Umeå, Sweden where the first project YAM Session took place. For a taste of YAM Session 2014 check out this video

All of the experience and information gained during the project will be assembled on the project website YAMspace is an international platform for everyone working to bring live music to children and youth. Here you’ll find news, events, a toolkit featuring best practices, training videos, interviews, articles, research and much more.
