The Music Education Code of Practice helps to ensure music practitioners provide high quality music making and learning experiences for the people they work with. The code does this by providing a set of quality statements concerning all aspects of music learning.

By adopting the code, practitioners demonstrate their commitment to quality work. By using the code as a benchmark, employers and hirers of practitioners demonstrate their commitment to requiring high-quality practice of those who work for them.

The code has been written into our Music in Care Practitioner training that we use to train musicians to lead our Heron Music Well Being Cafes.

The areas covered are:-

  • Be well prepared and organized
  • Be safe and responsible
  • Have appropriate musical skills
  • Work well with people
  • Evaluate and reflect on work
  • Commit to professional development
