PATHWAYS INTO MUSIC RESEARCH

MUSIC EDUCATION MAPPING | INFO
We are mapping music education in the UK, identifying and defining the different strands of music education and explaining how they fit together. This includes school, college and university based teaching; music hub activity; and community and industry led educational initiatives.




MUSIC CAREER MAPPING | INFO
We are also mapping music career routes, defining key steps in the careers of frontline artists, portfolio career musicians, music industry executives and music entrepreneurs. This includes identifying what knowledge people need to progress, and what support is available at each stage.




MUSIC INDUSTRY MAPPING | INFO
Finally, we are developing a map of the wider music industry and partnering with organisations around the UK – and beyond – to develop local music industry maps that identify gaps in each region and enable stronger connections between industry and education.
