Britten Pears Arts

Britten Pears Arts is a pioneering cultural charity based in Suffolk. It emerged from the determination of composer Benjamin Britten and his partner, singer Peter Pears, to ensure that everyone could enjoy and experience music. Britten Pears Arts aims to continue their legacy to develop talent, celebrate their heritage and engage with communities.

This report, commissioned by Britten Pears Arts with support from Suffolk Music Hub and Norfolk & Norwich Festival Bridge, maps Suffolk’s state school music provision in response to the 2022 National Plan for Music Education and finds that music education should hold a similar status to other core curriculum subjects because of its important role in boosting pupils’ wellbeing.
