Influencing Thinking

Music Mark supports its members by influencing thinking, policy and practice

Music Mark works to influence the thinking of those in the world of government and politics, music education and the wider education sector.

Music Mark works to influence thinking by recognising and celebrating success, by sharing best practice in ways that are meaningful and from which others can learn. We encourage discussion and debate, often drawing on the outcomes of meaningful research.

As a subject association, membership organisation and charity, we acknowledge the strengths of our membership and recognise the collective role we all have in shaping the future of music education.
