EDUCATION: Mapping Music Education

What do we even mean by music education? In the classroom, outside the classroom, primary, secondary, further, higher, performance-centric, production-centric, business-centric, school-led, venue-led, charity-led, artist-led, industry-led, mentoring, internships, apprenticeships and continued professional development, whatever the age, whatever the genre, we map music education across England in its widest sense. Redefining music education means joining lots of dots. We identify what dots need to be joined.

The Research
CMU Insights, Urban Development and BIMM have embarked on a major piece of research called ‘Redefining Music Education’ which began with a mapping exercise. Utilsing that research, Chris Cooke from CMU Insights and Phil Nelson from BIMM present a music education map for England.

The Interviews
Having identified all the key segments of music education in England, we meet people working in each of them to get an understanding of what they do, what they teach and how they teach it…
