Over the last 7 or 8 years, I’ve shared my real-world experiences of Music Education with many people – PGCE, GTP and School Direct students, fellow heads of music, parents, exam boards and school leaders from around the world. Usually this has been on a case-by-case basis to offer support or to share understanding.

The landscape of music education is changing in the UK. Government changes have caused a significant national decline in the amount of music education taught in schools. In this period however, the uptake and engagement at my own school has grown. I hope that by sharing the detail of our work, other heads of music and school leaders might be encouraged in their own practice. I hope to also develop a group of passionate music educators who will collaborate, without any thought of personal gain, to make a difference in the lives of thousands of young people across the country through the dissemination of inspirational and relevant practice in Music Education.
