National Plan for Music and Hubs

Music Education Hubs

Reach EVERY child and help you boost your Music Hub

 

 

Very real challenges for schools and music services persist, especially the central aim to provide and support EVERY child with a meaningful musical education. Government funding still fails to recognise the scale and reach of the task demanded and even successful proven traditional models of delivery cannot alone bridge all the gaps.

We do not have a silver bullet, but we have a substantial and comprehensive offer for music education that has a proven record of success.

If yes is the answer to the following 3 questions, then we have at least 5 ways in which we can help you boost your Music Hub.

Do you and your colleagues:-

  • Want even more of your children and young people to have a chance to learn an instrument over a sustained period and play in an ensemble?
  • Recognise both a need and a place for greater use of technology that harnesses your existing successful programmes of delivery and complements them with new affordable and scalable mechanisms that can help reach even the hardest to reach schools and their pupils?
  • Want to continue to meet Ofsted’s ever more demanding priorities for improving music and access to sustainable, progressive, music learning?
