Music Education: Call for evidence

(a Department for Education Consultation)

The Department for Education is currently seeking views on music education, with a specific focus on refreshing The National Plan for Music and Music Education Hubs. Encore is responsible for running Herefordshire Music Education Hub, alongside our services to schools, young people and opportunities out of school. This consultation is about music education for young people (not adults).


We would like as many people as possible to respond to the survey. The closing date is 13th March.


To help you see different views, I have included 3 documents for you:

  1. A joint letter from Music Mark and the Incorporated Society of Musicians to the DfE

  2. A consensus document (National Plan for Music Education 2), where a number of key organisations came together to consider their response

  3. Herefordshire context document written by myself

The link to the DfE survey can be found here.

Thank you to those of you who have or will complete the DfE survey
