Vacancy: Assistant Hub Manager
It is with very mixed feelings that we are announcing the departure of Craig Brown as the Assistant Manager of the Hub. He has been an invaluable member of the team, and will be much missed. It may come as no surprise to anybody that he can no longer combine an enhanced teaching commitment with his part time job for the Hub and all the other things he does. Yes, believe it or not, he has only been part time with the Hub. There is no doubt that, having made this decision, he will go on to have a very successful teaching career and we wish him all the best for the future.
Craig himself says "Over the past two years I have balanced my job at the hub with teaching, performing, conducting, as well as being involved in various musical projects. The decision to step back from the hub has not come easily, especially given the brilliant work that has been going on, and the ever increasing opportunities being made available for young people. Of course, I will remain a great supporter of York Music Hub, and look forward to been able to help through my other capacities as an educator, always promoting its great work helping young people engage with Music"
We are sure that everyone will join us in wishing Craig all the best, and thank him for his fantastic work over the past two years. If you would like more information about this role please visit www.yorkmusichub.org.uk/vacancies

York Music Hub Online Sharing Area
Our new online sharing space continues to be a huge success. We have featured many amazing performances from young people in and around York. The idea is to have an ongoing forum where we can celebrate music making and creativity. The area is for anyone who had a concert cancelled, a festival pulled, an exam postponed or just for anyone who's using this time to work on being musical. It's for things that are or were happening in school, it's for families at home, it's a way for us all to connect, share and enjoy each others music at this really difficult time.
Please do keep on adding more to the site by visiting share.yorkmusichub.org.uk or clicking here. All details of how to upload submissions are on the site, just follow the "submissions" link.
HuntSchoolMusic @ Oak Academy
It was announced this week that a York School has been chosen to create all the music content for the online learning site Oak National Academy. The site is being accessed by over 2 million users and is well worth exploring if you have secondary age young people in your home who are missing being at school. Huntington School Music department staff have done an amazing job and their lessons are superb, really intuitive, high quality, fun and easy to follow.
