As part of my support for the ISM campaigning, I am very happy to alert you all to a survey into GCSE Music that the ISM are undertaking. Please take time to complete a response as they seek to influence Government policy in this area. Here is the ISM’s request:
As you may be aware, the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) began looking at the role of GCSE music towards the end of 2012, as the threat from the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) reforms reached its peak. You can read more about this work, and read our useful glossary of terminology online.
Following the Government’s u-turn and further redrafts of the GCSE subject guidelines for music from the wider music education community we are now keen to hear what colleagues think of GCSE music.
We have launched a survey to inform our work.
Please take a moment to complete the survey and encourage colleagues across the music and education professions to do likewise. The website address for the survey is: www.surveymonkey.com/s/GCSEmusicreform
