Leeds College of Music welcomes the news which will see funding for local music education hubs to work with schools, local authorities and community organisations to get more young people taking part in music and arts.
 
LCoM Principal and Managing Director, Gerry Godley said;
 
Leeds College of Music welcomes the Government pledge to spend £300 million on music schemes over the next four years. It is encouraging to see a renewed emphasis on music and arts education across England, which is both a vital part of our heritage, and a positive catalyst in providing young people with career opportunities.  
 
As an organisation, we work hard to share our expertise with schools across the country and help students realise the next steps in their music education. We are delighted that this extra funding is being put in place to give young people the earliest opportunity to learn and develop through music.
