Report, March 2017

The 2016 AGM passed the following resolution:

"That this AGM instruct Council to recognise the importance of Instrumental Music Teachers in delivering National Qualifications in Music and to campaign for instrumental music to be regarded as part of the core curriculum."

The Instrumental Music Teachers (IMT) Network discussed this resolution at its meeting of 8 September 2016.

It agreed that in order to take forward this resolution, it would be necessary to devise a campaign rationale and strategy. A first step would be to undertake a survey of EIS IMT members, to ascertain in detail the role played by IMTs in delivering NQs in Music, and to gather information about the value of instrumental music, in order to support the development of a campaign rationale.
