Music Education Expo is the one event in the year when thousands of people involved in music education come together to share ideas and celebrate good practice.
Taking place on 25 & 26 February 2016 at London’s Olympia Central, both days of the show will be packed with hours of useful CPD, fun practical workshops, inspiring keynote lectures, high-quality performances and unparalleled networking opportunities.

Delegates will also have the chance to browse hundreds of education products, trying them out before they buy and bagging some exclusive discounts! Piano Street will present new educational material at stand J16 at the exhibition. We hope to see you there!
