Wrapping up Music Excellence London

A huge thanks to all those music educators and cultural partners across London and beyond for engaging in and contributing to Music Excellence London, the capital’s network supporting excellent musical teaching and learning at Key Stage 3 in London schools.

Over the last two years we have engaged with 631 teachers, head teachers and schools, arts and cultural organisations and Music Education Hubs. We have hosted six Teachmeets, two Inspire days, four webinars, and published 43 online resources.

Through Music Excellence London we now better understand the needs of teachers working at Key Stage 3 and how as a sector we can support them. We know teachers require ongoing networking opportunities. We recognise that they need conversational opportunities, time to share practical approaches to delivering a lesson and face-to-face support. We know that online resources and CPD is hugely valuable and we will continue to respond to this need. We also recognise you as individuals and that you have different priorities; whether that be CPD, signposting to research, strategic support or an improved understanding of London’s musical offering. In October we will publish the projects evaluation, led by Andrea Spain, and will continue to listen and respond and support teachers in their practice.

But whilst activity drew to a close this summer, Music Excellence London will continue to exist online and via social media @MusicExLondon and we encourage all colleagues in the music education sector to continue to check in with the progress and developments. We also encourage all members to connect with their Music Education Hub lead for ongoing professional development opportunities.
