SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS:
MMG have a limited amount of music grants, of up to £1000, available for schools and community groups to help towards the cost of musical activities and purchase or hire of musical instruments. Activities must take place, and be paid for, by 31st March 2023.
The grants are aimed at schools and community groups to respond to the National Plan for Music Education by developing out of school activity. The bidder must contribute at least 50% financially with the maximum contribution from MMG being £1000.
Up to £200 per term (3 term year) is available for pupils in receipt of pupil premium, or for those families who can demonstrate hardship, to receive individual or small group tuition.
Students could be those playing an instrument, singing or making music using electronic devices. The primary aim of the scheme is to support pupils who have received group tuition and now require support to progress further.
