UK Music calls for more support for music education as English schools re-open

Extract from the CMU

Cross-sector trade group UK Music has called on the government to ensure that music education is high up the agenda as schools swing back into action across England today after the latest COVID lockdown. The various school closures that have occurred over the last year due to COVID have “severely curtailed” access to music education for tens of thousands of young people, UK Music says.

The group’s CEO, Jamie Njoku-Goodwin, said this morning: “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on children’s learning and music education has been amongst the hardest hit. As children return to school, it’s mission-critical that music education is put front and centre of the efforts to catch up”.
