Youth Music Podcast - Episode 3: Music Education Expo Panel Debate - 'Supporting the 21st Century Musician'

The third episode of Youth Music's podcast is a recording of a panel debate from the Music Education & Drama Expo held in Manchester in October 2018. 

"Supporting the 21st Century Musician" was hosted by Max Wheeler and features representatives from the main exam boards including Dan Francis (RSL Awards / Rockschool), Marie Bessant (OCR), Dave Lowe (Manor CE Academy York / AQA), Jeffery Hole (Pearson), and Carol Reid from Youth Music.
