Music is vital...

The contribution that music education can make to society is more essential than ever.

The Music Education Council is a membership organisation for a diverse and inclusive group of individuals and organisations with an interest and expertise in music education in its widest and most inclusive sense. Whether you are a music teacher, animateur, music therapist, researcher, clinical practitioner, student, professional, community musician, active amateur or just have a personal interest… there is something of value for you within the MEC membership.

MEC aims to nurture an environment where educators can support everyone to connect, grow and thrive through music... 

...we know that currently, many barriers exist that prevent people from being engaged in music education.

We intend to dismantle those barriers.

By being a Member of MEC you are supporting us to do this important work.

You are also becoming part of the conversation, and part of the solution.

MEC acts as an expert advisor, facilitator of skills and knowledge sharing and enabler of change and can support you to:

 

  • Update and widen your personal expertise and knowledge by hearing and learning from experts in the wider MEC community

  • Take part in debate and discussion on matters of policy

  • Update your knowledge and skills by taking part in events and discussions on a wide range of relevant areas of practice

  • Take part in working groups and joint activity to take forward some of the key issues

  • Build your professional networks through meeting other MEC members
