Arts Council England has unveiled a nationwide project, while London’s new Music Hubs, funded with over £12 million, promise improved music education possibilities for children and youth.
A new generation of Music Hubs encompassing every region of England has been unveiled by Arts Council England on behalf of the Department for Education.

The areas of north, east, west, and south-east London will be served by four new hubs.
A total of £12.1 million will be given to the four London Music Hubs, of which £3 million will be used to purchase instruments, gear, and technology. Every child and young person in England will have access to excellent music education both inside and outside of schools thanks to these.

These hubs are provided by consortiums made up of different London-based music providers.
A total of £2,341,581 will be provided to the north London consortium, headed by Haringey Music Service, for music teaching and the purchase of instruments and equipment.
In order to provide children and young people with high-quality music education, the collaboration will bring together music services from the London boroughs of Haringey, Camden, Enfield, Islington, and Barnet.

A total of £2,846,016 was given to West London, and £3,898,545 went to East London.
A collaboration of five music services spanning seven local authorities is the London West Music Hub.

Barking and Dagenham Music Service, City of London, Hackney Music Service, Havering Music School, Newham Music, Redbridge Music Service, Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service, and Waltham Forest Music Service are the members of the East London Music Alliance (ELMA).

The most cash, £3,030,266 was given to South East London to establish a South East London Music Hub, which will be run by the current hub leads, Lewisham Music, Southwark Music, Bromley Youth Music Trust, Royal Greenwich Music Service, and Exley Music.

The government’s National Plan for Music Education and the Arts Council’s ten-year Let’s Create agenda will both be implemented with the assistance of the new Music Hubs.

Through these efforts, all children and young people will have better access to creativity and culture while also having the chance to fully develop their musical skills. Starting in September 2024, four hub lead organizations will oversee the new hubs and collaborate with educational institutions, colleges, universities, cultural organizations, and local government agencies.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing to work with the Department for Education on this refreshed National Plan for Music Education,” stated Michelle Walker, Arts Council England’s London Area Director.

“As part of our revised programme, each of our new London-based Music Hubs will ensure that children in the capital continue to have access to amazing musical equipment and worldclass creative opportunities, maintaining London’s reputation as a musical trailblazer and nurturing the next generation of the capital’s musicians.”
