THE NATIONAL MUSIC COUNCIL LOCAL
EDUCATION AUTHORITY MUSIC AWARDS 1999/2000
were received from 26 LEAs, including one joint submission. Given that
this is the first time the process has been undertaken electronically,
this was an encouraging response and augurs well for the future.
Council makes no apology for repeating our tribute to the people behind
these submissions - the heads of music services, advisers (specialist
and general), the teachers, the instrumentalists who provide training,
the locally elected representatives who commit the funds and, of course,
the pupils and students who are effectively guaranteeing a future for
is much evidence of the benefits to music services of the Department
for Education and Employment's bigger investment in the Standards Fund
and, in Scotland, the Scottish Executive Education Department's Higher
Still and Excellence Fund. Altogether, there is a more positive spirit
among music services, which must be good!
Council is delighted to be able to highlight so many examples of this
National Music Council's congratulations go to all the Authorities and
Music services identified here, and especially to Hertfordshire.
