Institute of Education - Please don't stop the music

July 22, 2010

Music education can have a positive impact on the intellectual, social and personal development of children and young people and must be preserved, even at a time of severe public-spending cutbacks. That is the view presented by Susan Hallam and Andrea Creech, academics at the Institute of Education, in a new book, Music Education in the 21st Century in the UK. The text, which includes contributions from 17 authors who are either IoE staff or have connections with the institute, examines opportunities for music education at different stages in people's lives.
