Musical Bridges: Transforming Transition was an initiative to help primary and secondary schools strengthen their students’ experience of school transfer in and through music.
The initiative was designed for primary teachers, primary music subject leaders and secondary music teachers, but also for Heads and senior school leaders with responsibility for school transfer arrangements.
Musical Bridges also worked with local authorities and music education hubs by providing a music transition framework to help connect and develop students’ musical progress between primary and secondary school.
Funding for Musical Bridges ended in September 2014, with the handover of the initiative to Music Mark, the UK Association for Music Education. A set of digital tools were created for teachers, heads and music hubs, which are available to use for free from the Musical Bridges website.
