Henley Review of Music Education published

The long awaited Darren Henley Review of Music Education and the Goverment's reponse to the recommenations have both been published.

The Secretary of State for Education has responded to the review with a pledge to end the 'musical divide' between wealthier children with access to great musical education and children in disadvantaged areas. To ensure young people from every background have access to quality music education, Michael Gove has announced that £82.5m will be given to music services across England next year.

The review's second recommendation is that:
'Singing should be an important part of every child's school life from Early Years through until at least Key Stage 3'.
The Government's response to the recommendation includes the following:
'Singing is important for all children and young people. We know that teachers value the resources provided through Sing Up, the National Singing Programme. We intend to support that programme for a further year so that it can continue to provide those resources whilst working towards a position of self-sustainability.'

Copies of the review and the Government's response can be downloaded here.

ABCD Choral Leaders' Festival
With great regret we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s abcd Choral Leaders’ Festival, our 35th Annual Convention, which was to have taken place from 28-30 August at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The decision was taken in light of the ongoing situation regarding coronavirus, both in the UK and abroad.
