Hello lovely musical people! Today's episode is going to address a number of important questions, but most importantly, in attempt to justify music as a subject in the curriculum of secondary schools (primarily in the UK) we will look at this trendy campaign slogan of 'Music for All', where it comes from and really why music for all is a thing that should matter to all.
The main takeaways of the episode
Why music should be accessible to all and studied in secondary schools:
My son is 10 [,] and one of the youngest in his class and he has dyslexia, which makes academic subjects a struggle for him. When it comes to music he becomes a different boy, it gives him confidence that he can be good at something" (Lightfoot, 2018).
