Hub News

October 2023

Dear partners, colleagues, parents and supporters
A warm welcome to the latest edition of our Hub newsletter. 
Last month the new academic year got off to a remarkable start with over 300 more learners compared to this time last year starting their musical journeys in Hub activities. We're optimistic this is the start of a prolonged trend as more and more people realise the life-changing benefits of music on children’s education, wellbeing and futures. 
In other news we have also welcomed four new Hub partners, convened our first Youth Advisory Board of the new year, begun our programme of CPD for music teachers, and have started to expand our music centre activities by searching for inspirational instrumental and vocal teachers to join our team. 
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you over the coming year.  Please do get in touch if there is anything we can do to support you.
Best wishes
James Underwood | chief executive | @westsussexmusic
