Recommendation 14 <ul><li>  Recommendation 14: Schools, Local Authority Music Services, Arts Council </li></ul><ul><li>England client organisations and other recognised delivery organisations should </li></ul><ul><li>work together to create Music Education Hubs in each Local Authority area. These </li></ul><ul><li>Hubs should receive ring-fenced central government funding to deliver Music </li></ul><ul><li>Education in each area following an open, advertised bidding process. It is </li></ul><ul><li>anticipated that there would be a lead organisation (which is likely to be a Local </li></ul><ul><li>Authority Music Service in almost all cases, but in some cases could also be an </li></ul><ul><li>Arts Council England client organisation or other recognised delivery </li></ul><ul><li>organisation). This lead organisation would be directly funded to undertake the </li></ul><ul><li>leading role in each Hub. The Department for Education should ensure that public </li></ul><ul><li>funds are invested to provide the highest quality Music Education for children and </li></ul><ul><li>young people efficiently and with the greatest accountability for the money spent. </li></ul>
