The York Music Hub is a partnership of key local and regional music organisations, led by York Arts Education, working together to create joined up, high quality music education for children and young people, in and out of school.
The Hub's vision is to develop sustainable, high quality and diverse musical experiences providing first access and coherent progression paths for all children and young people in the City of York and to enhance the education, life experiences and self-confidence of all children and young people, by developing sustainable and innovative partnerships.
Music education for children will receive an £18 million funding boost Education Minister Nick Gibb announced today (22 July).
The extra £18 million will be allocated to music education, including to the national network of 123 music education hubs established in 2012. This brings the total amount of funding available to music hubs in the next financial year to over £75 million.
