Who is the ASONE Music Education Hub

Music education hubs are groups of organisations – such as local authorities, schools, other hubs, art organisations, community or voluntary organisations – working together to create joined-up music education provision, respond to local need and fulfil the objectives of the Hub as set out in the National Plan for Music Education.  There are 120 Music Education Hubs across England and were launched in 2012. 

In Cornwall, the music hub partnership is led by ASONE Perform CIC and we work with a range of music and arts organisations, both local and national. We work together to support and promote quality musical learning for all children and young people in Cornwall. We are funded by the Department for Education through Arts Council England.  The Hub leads on the strategic development of music education in Cornwall.  

Further information about Music Education Hubs can be found on the Arts Council England website

The ASONE Music Education Hub (ASONE Hub) Mission

To create aspirational and innovative opportunities for children and young people in Cornwall to enjoy a diverse and inclusive music education which is supported collaboratively across our network of partners.


That all children and young people in Cornwall can engage and progress with high quality, innovative and inspirational music making opportunities which are relevant to them.


The Hub receives funding from the Department for Education, via Arts Council England.  The funding is in place until March 2020.  Funding is released on a quarterly basis upon the submission of satisfactory delivery data and financial information to the Arts Council.

In addition, the Hub works with partners to co-fund projects and also to apply for external funding for specific projects.  Successful joint bids over the last 2 years alone resulted in excess of £2m  of funding for local projects and we are continuing to work with our partners to identify new funding opportunities.  A number of activities also generate income from ticket sales and membership/delegates fees.

The Hub also holds the Hub funding for delivery on the Isles of Scilly.


The ASONE Hub is proud to be working in partnership with schools and settings on their Artsmark Award journey. By supporting Artsmark settings, we’re helping put the arts at the
heart of education, inspiring young people to create, experience and participate in high quality arts and culture.
