Cornwall Music Education Hub

The Cornwall Music Education Hub is made up of over 40 partners and supporting organisations all working together to support music education for young people in Cornwall. The Hub is funded by the Department for Education, through Arts Council England.

Hub Roles

Continue reading

As a condition of its Arts Council grant, the Hub is required to deliver four ‘core’ roles:

  • First Access - whole class or large group instrumental learning for the minimum of a term for every child aged 5-18
  • opportunities to play in ensembles and perform
  • clear progression routes which are available and affordable to all young people
  • regular singing opportunities including choirs and vocal ensembles for every pupil as a result of a singing strategy

Hubs are expected to obtain additional funding to help them to deliver three ‘extension’ roles:

  • CPD for school staff, particularly to help deliver curriculum music, as well as leadership
  • an instrument loan service (discounted or free for those on low incomes)
  • access to large-scale/high-quality music experiences for pupils via professional musicians/venues – may include publicising opportunities available to schools, parents/carers, pupils.

Further information about the work of the Hub can be found on the Cornwall Music Education Hub website.
