Music Education in England Gets Funding Boost

The UK’s Department for Education announced a £18m funding boost for children’s music education. This money will go towards music education which includes the national network of 123 music education hubs established in 2012.

Several months ago, Ofsed criticized a lack of depth and rigour in regards to music education school music in England.

Music and arts campaign groups in the nation are welcoming the funding boost.

The CEO of the Arts Council England, Alan Davey, in a public statement: “We’re delighted at the increased opportunity it will bring to support all young people to enjoy music and develop their talents through a connected music education landscape.”

Finding The Right Musical Entertainment For Corporate Events

As a promoter for many of our local events I often get asked for advice about musical entertainment for parties, corporate events, weddings and similar occasions.

What I do first in such cases is to ask the person for their spending budget, the type of event, the number of guests that will attend and similar things to get a better idea about what musical entertainment could be best for them.

As for corporate events, obviously those often have different requirements as, say, a private party. One reason for this is that corporate events sometimes (but not always) can also have a deeper purpose that’s not always evident. For example when a company wants to meet their clients or partners at such a casual event, means that the party’s purpose goes way beyond simple entertainment. Often the want to make an impression and this means that only the best of the best in terms of musical entertainment will do.

In such cases where musical entertainment for corporate functions is wanted that’s really different from your “average” corporate party that everyone will quickly forget, I always tell them to book the singing waiters.

The singing waiters are surprise music entertainers that can perform at weddings and corporate events.

They can attend your event dressed up as waiters, security staff or similar and then start their performance at the right time when no-one suspects it.

Also, know that the singing waiters are all professional trained at the best music schools in the United Kingdom.

Whether you need very classy corporate musical entertainment or plan to keep the party at a lighter note doesn’t matter. The singing waiters can perform classical operas as well as get the party mood to your party with the latest hits that everyone knows. You can book them for the entire day or for their performance which normally lasts about 90 minutes. My clients that booked the singing waiters in the past were all extremely satisfied and told me that the singing waiters had been the best experience they ever had at any corporate event. This is why I also want to recommend them to you.
