Why is the TYMT campaign needed?

We have a widely acknowledged music teacher crisis with a gap in recruitment numbers and poor working conditions. This campaign is intended to unite the music education sector to raise public awareness and promote the value of becoming a music teacher- and to highlight and showcase the incredible work music teachers do across the UK. 

A campaign to promote the value of music teachers has a direct effect on young people’s access to music education.  

Over the duration of the 3-year campaign, our objectives are to: 

  • Increase the profile of and recognition for the critical role that music teachers play in developing and inspiring creativity and musicianship in children and young people.
  • Raise awareness with policymakers, schools, communities and audiences across the UK of the importance of music educators and music education.
  • Improve the status of music teaching so that it becomes a more attractive career to grow the talent pool supporting children and young people in their musical journey.
