The national network of music education hubs has been up and running since September. Mark Burke explains what they have to offer secondary schools.

The publication of the National Plan for Music Education (NPME) last year signalled a clear commitment from the government to support the provision of music for children and young people.

It was supported by £170 million in funding across three years to provide every child aged five to 18 with the opportunity to sing, learn a musical instrument, and perform as part of an ensemble or choir.

This plan was needed to address a disparity in the quality of music education available to students in different parts of the country and draw in a wider range of providers who could potentially enrich the offer.
