As a Hub we aim to balance formal with informal routes to learning; schools and academy’s work with us to identify the best possible musical pathways for young musicians. But in increasingly challenging financial circumstances, both school and individuals can face barriers to progressing their ideas and ambitions respectively. Through our school targeted Development Grants, music coordinators and heads of department are given seed funding to take forward their ideas. Our Access Fund offers individual’s facing economic hardship or personal challenges the chance to apply for financial support so advance their musical learning.
The children were really inspired to hear all the different compositions from the other schools; I know that it took a lot of organisation for an event of this magnitude to take place and I just wanted to say that it really was worth all the effort.
