Music Education Hubs were established in 2012, in response to the government's 2011 National Plan for Music Education (NPME).

Severn Arts is the lead for Worcestershire’s Music Education Hub (WMEH), providing music tuition and music education in formal education settings, offering music opportunities for all children and young people in the county. Our work supports schools and teachers to work to the objectives outlined in the National Plan for Music Education and the principles outlined in the Durham Commission’s report on Creativity in Education. We have developed a School Music Education Plan, outlining how the hub will work with Worcestershire’s schools and we work with our partners to provide multiple ways in which young people can develop their musical journeys.

Worcestershire Music Education Hub is funded by the Department for Education, administered by Arts Council England.

Worcestershire Music Education Hub Steering Group is chaired by Julie Sutton. Julie is a Senior Lecturer in Education and the Primary Lead for School Based provision at the University of Worcester where she teaches music to both postgraduate and undergraduate trainees. Prior to joining the University, Julie worked in several different schools across Worcestershire as a Primary school teacher and music leader. Between 2009 and 2011, Julie was a Vocal Force facilitator for Worcestershire, supporting schools to develop a singing strategy.
