Music Education Hub Board

Our region has a rich cultural landscape, with Brighton Dome Brighton Festival, Glyndebourne and De La Warr Pavilion among the established cultural organisations located here. 

Create Music brings many of these organisations together, around a shared mission to enhance and further develop music education and opportunities in music that reflect the needs of all children and young people. 

Alongside our colleagues in schools, our key strategic partners include professional venues, arts organisations, local authorities and the wider music industry. The nature of these established partnerships brings both a national and international perspective to the Music Education Hub, with highly experienced and knowledgeable leaders from across the sector championing high quality provision and playing a crucial role in driving forward our work.
