Calling all parents! Want to support your child’s music making?

23rd June 2015

Calling all parents! Want to support your child’s music making?

Is your child mad about music? Could they be? If so, at what age should they start learning to sing, play an instrument or join a band? What’s out there for them in your local area and how might you support them?

These and other questions will be answered via a new resource that is being developed by ABRSM and Music Mark. The resource will help parents and carers to support their child’s interest in music and your feedback will help shape it.

Whatever stage of learning or level of musical engagement your child has reached or might like to reach, we hope the Parent’s Guide to Music Education will help you to support their interest, and enrich their experience of music as an enjoyable, life-enhancing activity.

Once launched, the resource will help you to identify and access the array of music education opportunities available to your child in your area. But before we get there, we’re conducting a small survey to learn more about how you’re currently supporting your child’s music learning and making and what we might do to support you in that even more.

Our joint survey with ABRSM will take just a few minutes to complete online. Those taking part will have the opportunity to be entered into our Prize Draw to win the top cash prize of £100 or one of five consolation cash prizes of £20. So tell us what you think!
