The Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Slough
Music Education Hub Alliance

The three music hubs, led by Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Slough Music Services, collaborate on a variety of programmes of common interest to further the educational and musical benefit of our hub partners. The aim of the partnership is to share expertise and experience, promote and exemplify the best pedagogical practice from across the region, and develop opportunties that are only possible when partnership and collaboration flourishes.
