This year there are more listings than ever, with information on music provision at over 400 independent schools, specialist music schools and choir schools, and out-of-school opportunities such as youth orchestras and choirs at national and local level, junior conservatoires, regional centres and local music schools.
As in previous years, expert writers give advice on various aspects of music education in a selection of editorial articles. This year we include a mini parents guide for the first time, with tips on finding the right kind of school, choosing an instrumental teacher, supporting your childs instrumental tuition, activities for musical children, plus information resources for parents.
Students will find full details of universities and conservatoires, including undergraduate and postgraduate course content and instrumental/vocal tuition, music and other campus facilities: there are also contact details for conservatoires across the world. There are also listings for summer schools and short courses for students of all standards, and specialist providers of courses in Alexander Technique, instrument making, arts administration, recording/music technology.
PLUS: educational organisations, local authority music contacts and provision, useful suppliers, library and museum resources, and individual performers and performing organisations with specially designed educational programmes.
