Musicians’ Union research

From NEU

NEU logo

The MU, with whom we have a partnership and joint membership arrangement, is researching the challenges relating to access to music education, workforce fragmentation and contradictory government policy. There are four surveys, aimed at:

Teachers with a responsibility for music who work in schools.
Instrumental music teachers who work in music services, hubs or as independent teachers.
Managers of music services, music education hubs or other organisations that deliver music education to young people.
Head teachers of primary, secondary or special schools.
We encourage you to complete the surveys that are relevant to you here.

The confidential information collected will form the basis of a report and future advocacy.
