We want to continue our work with teachers to do what we can to support music education in the UK. The Paul Hamlyn Foundation stopped fully funding Musical Futures in 2013, providing a transition grant to turn Musical Futures into a not-for-profit organisation from 2014. Musical Futures now operates solely on income generated from training and resource sales.
Whilst ALL of the original Musical Futures material, publications and resources around informal learning and non-formal teaching (around 200 resources) are still freely available and open source for anybody to access, any new material developed (and our training courses) do have a cost attached but this enables us to keep our network and ongoing programme of development going.
As an organisation, Musical Futures remains committed to working with teachers to keep music alive in our schools and to nurture the creative talent of tomorrow but we need support to do this.
If you believe in Musical Futures, please support us to continue this work. There are a number of ways you can do this:
|Can you spare us the price of a coffee?
The cost of 2 coffees would help us keep your Musical Futures Resources network open. Donations will ensure we remain sustainable.
Professional development time? Book yourself or your staff onto one of our high quality training sessions that we are running nationwide. 55% of training sales goes directly into making sure Musical Futures remains sustainable.
