The NCIE supports young musicians, facilitates the careers of music education practitioners and acts as a critical friend to music education hubs, Higher Education institutions and the music industry. We believe that those who face the greatest barriers need the greatest support. So we are focusing our efforts on supporting those who are currently least represented in the music industry, particularly people with disabilities.
On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon.
