This post will be updated each time we add music education reports and news which is relevant to Wales.
This report by the Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee at the National Assembly for Wales focuses on addressing the shortfalls in music education provision and achieving consistency across Wales. This is to ensure that every child, regardless of their location or financial backing, has an equal opportunity to progress to excellence.
The aim of this research is to provide important background information for the development of a National Music Education Performance Strategy for Wales, which would provide synergy between National Youth Arts, Arts Council Wales (for example the Creative Learning Through the Arts – An Action Plan For Wales 2015 – 2020 report (see below) and Donaldson (2015)), providing for a statuary, core, access offer, on the basis of access, equality and affordability for all.
This report examined the current and asserted the future role of local authority music services in supporting schools to deliver high quality music education in Wales.
In 2015, the Welsh Government published its strategic objectives for creative learning through the arts in Wales from 2015 to 2020. In partnership with Arts Council Wales, the Welsh Government’s plan responded to the 12 recommendations in Professor Dai Smith’s report.
