INTRODUCING PATHWAYS INTO MUSIC

The Pathways Into Music Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation launched by CMU to support music educators and music talent development programmes around the UK and beyond, and to help early-career music-makers plan their personal pathways into music.



It also seeks to connect all the different strands of music education – classical, commercial, formal, informal, performance, composition, production and business – with all the different strands of the music industry, helping them speak the same language and share knowledge and experience.



Pathways Into Music is led by CMU founder Chris Cooke and artist manager and music business educator Phil Nelson – meet them both here.

OUR WORK

RESEARCH
The Pathways Into Music research programme is mapping music education, the music-maker community and music careers with a view to identifying the knowledge and information early-career music-makers need access to, and the people and organisations able to provide it.




RESOURCES
Based on the Foundation’s research, Pathways Into Music regularly publishes white papers and practical guides helping people to navigate and understand music education and the music industry, and how music-makers go about building a career around their music-making.




EVENTS
Pathways Into Music presents regular sessions about its work at conferences and events around the world, and also curates and hosts a full-day MUSIC+EDUCATION programme as part of the CMU+TGE Sessions at The Great Escape Conference in Brighton each May.
