Working with the Music Education Council
The Music Education Council (MEC) brings together organisations and institutions in the UK involved in music education and music education training, creating opportunities for the exchange of information and the promotion of joint or connected activities.
As the umbrella body for music education organisations in the UK and the country's representative body for the International Society for Music Education (ISME) and other international organisations, MEC is uniquely placed to represent the sector. ABRSM is represented as part of the MEC Forum, which oversees and coordinates the work of the MEC Special Interest Groups and the Task and Finish Groups. Lincoln Abbotts, ABRSM's Executive Director: Strategic development, acts as a trustee.
