Supporting Music Teachers

Use the hashtag

Support My Music Teacher

Tell us why you support your music teacher – how your music teacher changed your life and helped you achieve your ambitions.

Are you a music teacher? Share the issues affecting you, and ask your students to show their support.

Use the hashtag #supportmymusicteacher

#SupportMyMusicTeacher, in collaboration with the Music Industries Association, highlights the inspirational work of music teachers across the UK.

We want to raise awareness of the issues affecting music teachers everywhere, and celebrate the work music teachers do to create the musicians and music lovers of the future.

We want to stop music education becoming the preserve of only those with the means to pay.

What can you do?

Tell us why you support your music teacher – how your music teacher changed your life and helped you achieve your ambitions. Tweet and post across social media using the hashtag #supportmymusicteacher

Are you a music teacher? Share the issues affecting you, and ask your students to show their support.

Get in touch with your local school to tell them about Infinity, a bespoke resource for non-specialist teachers and leaders to teach creative music making to 6-12 year olds. Tell your schools about it and, if they join in, tell us about it.

Finally, we are always interested to hear what is happening on the ground in your area. The MU’s report Music Hubs Fail – the real story released in February 2014, was based on what our Hub Reps and members reported to us about what was happening with music services in England. For us to report on the bigger picture we need your stories as to what really is happening on the ground. Please send these to the MU’s Education and Training Department at teachers@theMU.org
