Islington Roundtable Discussions Launch

Following the recent announcement that Sound Connections has been commissioned to research and create a new music education strategy for Islington, we are pleased to release details of two roundtable discussions as part of the research process.  These events are an opportunity for anyone interested in the future of music education in Islington to contribute knowledge, ideas and suggestions in an open forum.

The Islington Music Education Strategy is funded by Islington Council and Dame Alice Owen Foundation in partnership with Arts First.

Monday 22 February, 4.00pm-6.30pm, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson school

Thursday 17 March, 4.00pm-6.30pm, Arts & Media School, Islington – :

Both discussions will follow the same structure and topics, so you need only book to attend one of the two dates.

The roundtable discussions are organised and facilitated by Sound Connections.  If you have any questions, please contact

More information about the new music education strategy for Islington: 

Islington is a culturally rich borough with an enviable cultural infrastructure.  Nonetheless, ensuring music provision is well-connected and reaches every child and young person regardless of background or circumstance remains a challenge.

To address this challenge, Islington Council and Dame Alice Owen Foundation, in partnership with Arts First and a host of world class providers of music education in Islington, have commissioned Sound Connections to research and create a new strategy for music education in Islington.  This is an opportunity to move towards a more joined-up, cohesive and equitable music offer.  Islington can become a borough of musical excellence where all children and young people are able to have sustained access to high quality music making opportunities.

If you are a school or education institution; provide music activities, projects or qualifications for children and young people ages 0-25 in any type of setting; or are a young person, parent, carer or resident interested in Islington’s music education offer then you are an important voice and we look forward to hearing from you.


As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
