Pitch to us

Interested in creating content for our site? Pitch us your idea in the form below.

What content are we looking for?

Youth Music's vision is that one day, all children and young people will be able to have musical lives. We campaign alongside young people to advocate for those who are missing out, to invest where it’s needed most, and to drive change in the music industries and education.

We're looking for young people to share their voices on the issues they care about, platform emerging artists and local music scenes, and help us demystify careers in the music industry.

Whether that's a deep dive into music in your local area, an interview with someone in the industry or your community, or something completely different - we want to hear it. Check out some of the previous content we've commissioned below. 

How much do we pay?

We pay a standard rate of £20 per hour, or £150 per day, depending on the piece of content. Dependent on experience we're open to negotiating payment.

Have an idea but not sure how to make it happen?

We're in contact with lots of other people who can bring your idea to life. Whether that's connecting you with a music industry figure you can interview, or putting you in contact with another content creator (can't edit videos? we know some great video editors!), we've got you covered. Just let us know what your skills are in your pitch.

What should I include in my pitch?

Keep your pitch short and simple (300-500 words). Include:

  • A bit about yourself (what's your career background and aspirations)
  • Why this content needs to be created now
  • Why you’re the right person to create it
