Learning new skills, developing and motivating talent and experiencing new music ideas; progression is the golden thread that ties the Music Education Hub together. Progression needs vary widely, depending on the individual or the school.

We work closely with neighbouring hub, Dorset Music Service, to support access to the County groups; we make recommendations within a school setting to harness enthusiasm developed from First Access delivery (e.g. after school clubs) and we undertake direct commissions which this year include supporting GCSE and A-level composition, ensemble development at KS2 (in partnership with the BSO) and a range of singing programmes.

We work with our Partners to refine and extend their local offers, developing progression routes so that any young person who wants to can take that next musical step, in any musical direction. Individual support is available via our Grants section.
