The ANDANTE REPORT - Food for thought!

At last!  After a pretty long period of gestation, the ANDANTE REPORT  -  Music & Music Education in the UK (From John O'Groats to Land's End) is finally complete and published! You can view or download it via the link opposite - but it's 50+ pages, so I wouldn't recommend printing it.  I hope you enjoy it and that it doesn't offend too many people!  I would be very grateful if you could help to circulate it (by email - or share it on Facebook) to as many people as possible.  (Even if you disagree with some of it!)

It doesn't stop there!  I hope the report is thought-provoking enough to stimulate some more debate and that everybody will contribute ideas and comments.  You can do this by email to - or via Facebook using any of three pages:  "Andante - The big walk", "Music Education Debate" or "Xen Kelsey".

If you have a moment, you can also listen to a radio interview I did with the excellent Philip Knighton of 10 Radio. (See opposite.)

My thanks again to all those who have helped or contributed in any way to this massive project - and there is still time to donate! (Raising funds for two very worthy musical charities - Vacation Chamber Orchestras and St Cecilia Orchestra.)

Very best wishes - and have a great Christmas and New Year!
