The MMC is part of the Government’s commitment to ensure having the opportunity to study and explore music is not a privilege; it is a vital part of a broad and ambitious curriculum. It sets out a detailed and progressive formula to ensure that through working with their Music Education Hubs, schools can provide a quality music education for their pupils, ensuring that every child develops a life-long love of music and musical performance.
