NYMAZ is seeking an Evaluation Consultant

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 to those in challenging circumstances, including rural isolation. We are also committed to strengthening the sector through workforce development, building strategic partnerships and advocating for the benefits of participatory music.

NYMAZ is seeking an evaluation consultant (or team) to work with us and our partners to help us to capture the learning from our 4 Connect: Resound New Contexts Action Research Projects. The projects will trial our tried and tested approach to delivering instrumental lessons and other music activities online in new contexts, where we and our partners feel that remote learning may be valuable in increasing access to and encouraging participation in music education.
