CMU+TGE Update: Mapping music education at The Great Escape

TGE Mapping Education

The Great Escape 2022 is nearly here – and each day in the CMU Daily we are providing a guide to the CMU+TGE Sessions taking place there this year. That all kicks off on Wednesday 11 May at 10am with the MUSIC + EDUCATION strand, bringing together music educators and the music industry, and everyone involved in supporting new music talent.

This strand focuses on the research work of CMU’s Pathways Into Music Foundation. This is our not-for-profit organisation that exists 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.

As well as reviewing our research to date, we’ll also be launching our new big research project, in which we want to fully map music education and music talent development in all its many forms all over the UK.

Basically we want to identify, map, champion and connect all the brilliant music education and talent development programmes and initiatives around the UK – as well as music lessons, tuition and activities in schools, and all the college and university courses available focused on music performance, composition, production and business.

To get things going, we are urging any individual or organisation working in music education or talent development to make sure they are on our radar by filling out the very short form on this webpage.

We’ll then explain more about this work during the MUSIC + EDUCATION strand at TGE. Plus we’ll discuss the wider music education landscape – and how we can better connect the different programmes, institutions and organisations – with Pamela McCormick from UD; Wizdom from We Are Impact and MOBO UnSung; Peter Chivers from Create Music; and artist, label manager and BIMM course leader Dr Maha.
