Protect Music Education Campaign

At today’s ISM Conference, Deborah Annetts (Chief Executive) dropped a bombshell on a stunned auditorium of musicians and music teachers. The DfE have published a consultation document ‘Savings to the Education Services Grant 2015-2016’ which suggests that one of the ways Local Authorities could save money is by cutting funding to their music services. Since there has still been no announcement about continued central funding to Music Education Hubs beyond 2015, this is an extremely worrying development, and has resulted in the ISM stepping up their ‘Protect Music Education’ campaign.

We would urge all of you who support and value the work of Music Education Hubs to sign the petition at http://www.protectmusiceducation.org/
