For our first National Music Service Open Forum, we met at Pontio in Bangor. The Open Forum has been created by the National Music Service and Music Partnership Forum Wales as a space where people can explore current topics in music education, hear about the progress of the National Music Education Plan, network and share opportunities. The theme for this first meeting was pathways in music education.
