The UK Association for Music Education – Music Mark is a charitable, independent membership organisation, representing and supporting Music Services and over 12,000 instrumental and classroom music teachers, tutors, consultants, advisers, inspectors and lecturers in Initial Teacher Education.
Music Mark was formed in February 2013 as a merger of the Federation of Music Services and the National Association of Music Educators. In addition to representing its members’ interests in a wide range of political, educational and musical contexts, Music Mark is the principal music subject association and advises governmental and non-governmental departments on all matters relating to music education.
Music Mark has created some guidance documents for assessing and monitoring progress in music in schools (both WCET and Instrumental Tuition).
