Schools and teachers

Music provision, opportunities and information for all schools across Derby and Derbyshire.

From September 2013, Music Education Hubs replaced the music service model of delivering musical activities in schools and ensemble activities with a more joined-up approach involving local authorities, music services, other music education providers and communities. All work together to deliver the National Plan for Music Education.
