"Music unlocks creativity. It develops children's social skills and their self-confidence." - Carolyn Baxendale, Head of Bolton Music Service and the GM Music Hub
Music Education Hubs were established in 2012, in response to the British government’s 2011 National Plan for Music Education (NPME), to provide access, opportunities and excellence in music education for all children and young people.
Arts Council England think that all children and young people across England should have access to the highest quality music education. Their network of 123 Music Education Hubs are working hard to achieve this aim - in partnership with schools and further education institutions, they run all kinds of projects to inspire young people through music.
