We’re working with schools and music providers to develop 13 Musical Clusters across Wiltshire.
Clusters are mini Hubs – bringing together musical communities at a more localised level – schools, tutors, venues, organisations / societies – a range of people and settings in which musical learning can take place. Clusters will enable us to target our support more effectively.
The aim is to improve children’s progress and engagement through:
- Educators’ increased skills, knowledge and confidence at providing musical learning in their setting.
- Access to a wider range of opportunities, experiences and resources.
We contract part time Cluster Coordinator roles to help pull people and ideas together and develop ideas. Their details are below.
To find details of Cluster meetings, please go to the What’s On section of our site and search under the “Training and Development for Schools and Providers” category.

Support and learn from your musical community – share resources / tips / experiences – whether you’re an experienced and confident music teacher / coordinator or one who isn’t – you are not alone!
Why you or your organisation / school should engage with and help shape your Musical Cluster(s):
- Develop collective projects or professional development sessions that address local priorities
- Hear about other providers’ projects, offers and opportunities.
- Build a better picture of what’s really going on in your area so you can see how you fit in.
No matter what the size or capacity of your school or organisation there should be things to pick up on and benefit from.
