Funding for and access to music education

The Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee held an inquiry into Funding for and Access to Music Education.

The inquiry was a result of a poll held from 3 October 2016 to 15 November 2016 where the Committee asked the public to choose what topic the Committee should prioritise.


The Committee consulted on the draft terms of reference and agreed the following from evidence gathered from the responses.

  • Access to local authority music services for all children and young people;
  • The current position with the national and regional ensembles;
  • Progress made in implementing the recommendations of the Welsh Government’s reviews into music services and the national arts ensembles;
  • The impact of funding decisions on the delivery of local authority music services and issues relating to the music education workforce; and  
  • Examining the broader provision of music education services through the third and commercial sector.
