Support Call to “Let Every Child Learn Music” on Facebook

The Musicians’ Union has released a “Let every child learn music” Facebook Frame to highlight access to music lessons in schools.

New data released by the Musicians’ Union (MU) shows many parts of the UK are at risk of under-representation in the music industry, as lower income families are priced out of music lessons.

Over 40% of those from low-income families say music lessons are beyond their household budgets.

Our research also reveals families with a total household income of less than £28,000 are half as likely to have a child learning an instrument as more affluent peers with a family income of £48,000 or more. This stark disparity exists despite similar levels of interest from both groups of children.

That’s why we’re calling on Government to review its offering of music education in schools.

Try the Facebook frame now!

Music fans who would like to join a network of people campaigning to protect music can sign up to be a MU supporter for free.
