ACE announces Music Education Hubs

Arts Council England has announced the nationwide network of 122 music education hubs that will play a key role in ensuring that every child has the opportunity to experience a high quality music education. £171 million of funding will support the network of hubs between August 2012 and March 2015.   The awards have been made following publication of The National Plan for Music Education aimed at creating and furthering music education opportunities for 5-18 year olds. The new music education hubs will see a significant shift in the way music education has been delivered to date, both in and out of school. Organisations, including schools, professional music organisations, higher and further education institutions and other Arts Council funded organisations working in a local area will be coming together to create joined up music education provision for children and young people.  

The aim of this work is to ensure that every child aged 5-18 has the opportunity to sing and learn a musical instrument, to progress to the next level, and play with other children as part of an ensemble or choir. The 122 new hubs will provide significantly improved opportunities for all young people to benefit from high quality musical experiences regardless of where they live.  For more information about Music Hubs, click: Read more about music education hubs.
