Music for Young Audiences



JMI is the world’s largest network of youth and music organisations with members in over 70 countries carrying out 40,000+ activities annually, outreaching more than 6 million young people. Founded in Brussels (Belgium) in 1945, JMI works tirelessly to enable young people to develop through music across all boundaries. JMI’s activities are built upon the principals of access to music for all, development through music education (formal/non-formal/informal) and increasing active participation in society through music.

JMI works for and with youth, empowering them with the tools they need to succeed, using the power of music to bridge social, geographical and cultural divides and create an international platform for intercultural dialogue and acceptance.
