from The Editor

Ensemble magazine is an award-nominated termly publication reflecting the most inspiring resources relevant for those working in the UK and international schools worldwide. We try to publish as much exclusive content as possible, including interviews with those working at the forefront of music education; in schools, with policy-makers and internationally renowned artists, composers and teachers. We try to get a different angle from other publications and a more personal response from every person we talk to. Music Education is very personal to those who are passionate about the way they deliver it, connect with each student on an individual or class level and so we like to dig a little deeper in to the experience of each teacher we talk to. We hope that you appreciate this angle to our publishing that makes Ensemble worthy of a long-term place on your bookshelf.

Ensemble is delivered to every Music Teachers’ Association member as well as key music education personnel across the UK.
