What does the Ebacc mean for music?

There is a danger that keeping the English Baccalaureate as it now stands could make it 'impossible' for those studying GCSEs to have the option of music. This news comes following a report from a leading body, the Incoporated Society of Musicians.

Deborah Annetts, CE of ISM: 'Without music GCSE being given the weighting it deserves, our cultural and creative economy will be put at risk, and young people who want to be involved in the music sector will have their efforts hampered'

The ISM noted that teachers have already reported a drop in students taking GCSE music. For more information please visit: www.ism.org.
