Wiltshire Music Connect joins Furthering Talent!


We’re delighted to welcome Wiltshire Music Connect to the Furthering Talent family. They are the tenth Music Education Hub to partner with us on this programme and join Bradford, Brighton, Greater Manchester, Hull, Leicestershire, Manchester City, Nottinghamshire, The Music Partnership (formerly the NW Midlands Hub) and Sheffield.

“We’re really pleased to bring Wiltshire Music Connect into the programme – they are bringing some really innovative thinking and a real desire to help deliver high quality music tuition to children who may not otherwise have access to it.” Neil Phillips: Furthering Talent Programme Manager

“We’re really chuffed to be partnering with AYM on this programme. It’s going to add important new dimensions to our huge programme of tuition subsidy for disadvantaged learners and help us support our hub community in terms of developing skills and understanding amongst Associate tutors and secondary schools.” Nick Howdle: Leader of Wiltshire Music Connect

We have appointed Martin Stewart as our new Wiltshire Local Coordinator. He has begun preparation work for delivery to start in the new academic year. 


Furthering Talent has received significant support from Youth Music over a number of years.  We have recently been invited by Youth Music to join the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England. The work has been made possible by funding from the National Lottery via Arts Council England.


Next recruitment round

We will be recruiting 5 more Hub partners to join the programme in 2020 and welcomes anyone interested to get in touch. Please contact Neil Phillips on 0300 302 3418 or [email protected] to find out more.
