The Musicians’ Union (MU) is now included in the latest edition of The Short Guide to Accessible Music Education.

The Short Guide to Accessible Music Education is the only guide of its kind in the UK. It is a one-stop-shop, signposting organisations, initiatives, research documents and more around the subject of accessible music education.

The guide is also a campaigning tool to advocate for all the amazing work going on in this area in the UK, and a prompt for those with influence to re-double efforts towards a music education offer that is truly accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

It was compiled by Emma Lines (Drake Music Scotland) and Jonathan Westrup (Drake Music), in partnership with the Music Education Council ASN/SEND Working Group.
