Abstract:

This summary report gives an overview of the initial findings from a long-term study of the charity Sistema Scotland’s Big Noise orchestras. Through the Big Noise programme Sistema Scotland believes that children from disadvantaged backgrounds can gain significant social benefits and acquire a range of life skills by playing in a symphony orchestra.

The evaluation study has been established to capture important learning from the implementation and impact of Sistema Scotland’s work in Raploch and Govanhill. The study assesses the contribution made by Sistema Scotland to transforming the health, wellbeing and prospects of children and young people living in the areas where Big Noise programmes are delivered.
