The Importance of Music - A National Plan for Music Education from NAME
On the 25th November the Government published 'The Importance of Music - A National Plan for Music Education'. The challenging plan commits continued funding to music education for the three years from April 2012 as part of a move towards a per-pupil national funding formula and proposes the establishment of new music education hubs to take forward the work of local authority music services from September 2012. 'The Importance of Music' can be downloaded from https://www.education.gov.uk/publications/standard/publicationDetail/Page1/DFE-00086-2011 .
The National Association of Music Educators have produced both a summary of the plan and an initial response. They can be found on the Association website http://www.name.org.uk/.
