Emily shares her thoughts on becoming a Hub Partner with us:
“Music has played and continues to play, a vital and ever-present role in my life. Being able to share this with others through singing, song writing, and project work is a real privilege. I have worked with West Sussex Music in a variety of ways over the last 12 years and am delighted to be part of the evolving way West Sussex Music works and to be an Music Hub Partner. I believe collaboration and working creatively together is the key to bringing more music and opportunities to more young people, something I am committed to and will work my hardest to achieve as a Hub Partner”
James Underwood, Director of West Sussex Music Education Hub said:
