A happy life is a creative life – why every child needs music

Richard Morrison chair
Panel includes:
Darren Henley Classic FM
Kathryn McDowell LSO

Do children get enough music in school, or out of school? Has the Government got the balance right between the arts, the humanities and the sciences in the curriculum? Do other countries have a better approach? Can the music hubs make a difference, at a time of falling budgets? Richard Morrison, the chief music critic of The Times, offers a wide-ranging survey of music education in Britain, illustrated by performances from the talented youngsters of LSO Youth Choirs, Tomorrow’s Warriors and the Purcell School. He then chairs a panel discussion with leading figures in music, education and the media, including Kathryn McDowell, the Managing Director of the London Symphony Orchestra, and Darren Henley, the Managing Director of Classic FM and the author of two important Government reports on music and arts education.
