Welcome to Music Mark!

We have over 5000 School Members, all doing fantastic and inspiring work. We work to connect our members from the music education sector, as well as offering training courses, conferences and CPD.

We are also your subject association for music and our online MarketPlace offers a comprehensive range of resources to support music teachers. We include both free-to-access and purchasable resources.

This is your first of three newsletters this year with the latest sector news and events and we hope you find it useful. We wish you a successful academic year and hope to hear from you soon!
