‘Crazy funding cuts put music education at risk’.

By tampering with the delicate ecology of music education, there could be unintended consequences such as undermining progression routes from school through to both university and conservatoire and an adverse impact on the creation of the next generation of musicians.

“With the music industry being worth over £3.5bn to the British economy, we simply cannot take this risk”.

Julian Lloyd Weber said: “Music should be the birthright of all children.

“There has been too much talking and not enough action.

“We really need to rise above this kind of ‘will we get funding this year, will it come next year?’

“It should be taken as read that our children learn music.”
