Mark Taylor, Director of Music, Simon Balle School
Perhaps we should be happy. Perhaps we should celebrate? Having read the plan, we have for the first time a plan for music. Something from the government that sets out their opinion. It is positive – they value music. It sets out what we, as a sector, should be doing. We have some funding. Music has a place in education and an important one. Now the challenge is with us, in music education. We need to stop moaning, pull together and get on with it. Fast.
