Commissioned by the Bernard van Leer Foundation, Published June 2020

This research report from WolfBrown and the Bernard van Leer Foundation combines a comprehensive literature and landscape review that highlights the value, impact, and scaling potential of music and sustainable music interventions/programs throughout the world.

Understanding and harnessing the value of music provides a multitude of opportunities for supporting child development, child-caregiver bonds, and overall family well-being in an inclusive and human way. The paper also provides clear action steps for organizations and governments interested in investing in music across a range of areas (public health, early learning and education, community planning and design, and arts and culture) that influence early childhood development and caregiver mental health.
