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 song writing 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.
