TGE:CON - The Education Conference Only Pass
CMU INSIGHTS PRESENTS THE EDUCATION CONFERENCE
Everyone agrees that the British music industry is one of the UK’s success stories. Yet music education in the UK has seen its funding cut and its place in the curriculum downgraded. How can we ensure the UK music industry of the future has the talent and knowledge it needs to continue to prosper? Step one is building closer ties between employers and educators in music. What skills is the music industry looking for and are those skills being taught? Most musicians pursue portfolio careers and run their own small music businesses – beyond the crucial art of songwriting and performance, is music education preparing young people for that challenge? How can the different strands of music and music education better collaborate to capitalise on the opportunities and meet the challenges? We will bring together music educators and employers from across the UK and beyond to create a new manifesto for music education.
This TGE:Convention strand takes place on Wednesday 16th May. Stand alone tickets for this convention strand can now be purchased or TGE delegates can gain access with their TGE Delegate pass
