Music has the power to excite and enrich all of our lives.  It is vital that we give all young people the chance to experience this magic first hand.  The Music Manifesto is committed to making this happen.  Hundreds of signatories have come together from the worlds of education, culture, industry and government to share in the common vision: Whether it is singing in a gospel choir, playing in a school orchestra or DJ-ing at a local arts centre, the Music Manifesto is committed to improving musical experiences for all young people.

In this country, we have some of the most musical and creatively dynamic young people in the world – they are the foundation of our internationally recognised creative economy and music industry.

I am committed to supporting opportunities for all young people to realise their creative potential through music and the arts, whatever their background and wherever they live.  In signing up to the Music Manifesto, we have all made a commitment to working together on the design and delivery of the music education of the future
