Two UK Charities Fund Spots in Musicians of Change Program

Two music teachers will get the opportunity to complete this master's-level program for free at Birmingham City University


UK charity Music Masters has partnered with a similar organization, Black Lives in Music, to offer two fully-funded places on the Musicians of Change teacher training course at Birmingham City University.

The program, which offers a master's-level qualification, has a particular focus on educating musical children in group environments and is designed to equip teachers with the skills they need to negotiate the specific challenges of the music education world — such as a lack of funding and support.

As well as offering a qualification, the program aims to connect music teachers, so that they can build a community and support network that will continue after the conclusion of their study.

"Training courses are expensive and often conflict with other freelance work, and pressures on musicians are mounting, with access to opportunities limited for many of those in underrepresented groups," said Katrina Damigos, the program director of Music Masters. "Music Masters is committed to transforming music education and tackling underrepresentation in the music education workforce; we couldn’t be happier to be continuing our partnership with Black Lives in Music."

"We are strong advocates of partnership and advocacy, they’re both key drivers of the important change that we all want to see," said Roger Wilson, the director of operations at Black Lives in Music. "Black Lives in Music is proud to be working in collaboration with Music Masters on this very important and much needed program."

"We’re helping today’s developing professionals to access important resources of learning and professional expertise with the shared vision of a representative workforce."
