Arts Council England provide a network of music education hubs across England.
Music education hubs will ensure that every child aged 5-18 has the opportunity to sing and learn a musical instrument, and to perform as part of an ensemble or choir. It will also allow young people to take their talent further - this might be through local ensembles or partnerships with music organisations.
Music education hubs will build on existing music services. A music education hub will be a collection of organisations working in a local area, to create joined up music education provision for children and young people, both in and out of school. Forest Arts Centre is the lead organisation in the Walsall area.
Hubs will form strong partnerships with local authorities, schools, music organisations, practitioners and communities to provide quality music education across the whole country - while delivering better value for money and greater accountability.
