The reforms in music education in the United Kingdom in the period 1988 – 2012 as a model for successful cultural and educational strategy
The text looks at the educational reforms in England during the period 2008-2012, which preceded the National Plan for Music Education published in 2012. This is undoubtedly the
most ambitious and significant step of the British government and society in this sphere. The National Plan aims to provide every child in England with fair opportunities to access highquality music education in and out of school. It imposes new forms of instrumental training and organization of the activities of institutions involved in musical education. But the decision to implement this plan was reached after the many years of joint efforts of professional musicians – artists, teachers, composers, charities for art and education, the scientific community and
political leaders, who gradually built the effective principles and models included in the National Plan for Music Education.
