Music Education Hubs and Music Services

As a Music Education Hub or Music Service your offer to young people is at the very heart of what you do.  Many Hub partnerships and music services are already Arts Award centres, able to offer Arts Award directly to children and young people within their own projects and programmes. Whether or not you are currently offering Arts Award your can also promote your wider activities to other young people who might be doing Arts Award in schools, youth clubs, and arts and cultural organisations - by becoming an Arts Award Supporter.

Arts Award Supporter is free to sign up and easy to do. It helps hubs deliver core and extension roles, and helps music services promote a wide range of music making activity to young people using their Arts Award journey to develop their skills and experience.
