The government published the power of music to change lives: a national plan for music education. It sets out a vision to enable all children and young people to:
- learn to sing, play an instrument and create music together
- have the opportunity to progress their musical interests and talents, including professionally
Every child should receive a great music education. Learning about music and having the opportunity to play musical instruments and make music together is a vital part of a rich and rounded education. Music plays a key role in brain development. It helps to develop language, motor skills, emotional intelligence and collaboration skills.
In response to this, we have published our School Strategy for Music for the following Year.
