With more than 30 music organisations
now backing the campaign, from the Music Industries Association through
to NMC recordings and Conservatoires UK we now want to hear what you
have to say!
Each organisation has contributed approximately 100 words on the
importance of music education and we want you to do the same - all you
need to do is tell us why music education matters to you by using the forum on our petition page.
'The inspirational work done by music
educators across the country transforms the lives of young people every
day. The effect of music on personal development is phenomenal - it
promotes dedication and teamwork, and can provide a lifetime of
enjoyment. It is essential that ring-fenced funding to support high
quality music education is retained - without it, access will be
diminished and our society will be poorer for it.'
We now want to hear why music education matters to you!
2. Tell others about the campaign
As well as telling us about the importance of music education, you can
also encourage others to sign up. Ask your pupils, parents, friends,
family and colleagues to sign up to the campaign today.
And you can tweet about the campaign and tell people about it on Facebook using the #protectmusic campaign hash tag.
Thank you again for your support. Please spread the word about the
campaign as wide as you can. Together we can make an impact on
Government policy and ensure that music education is protected for the generations to come.
