‘Classical Music is for all – so why are young people being deprived of one of life’s great pleasures?’ says Rob Rinder in the London Evening Standard.
‘Learning a musical instrument nurtures independence, confidence, staying power, collaboration, even mathematical capability. More importantly, it fosters imagination, and the connection with something beyond everyday curricular drudgery. I want Quality music teaching to be available to everyone. I want young people to believe nothing is out of their reach. Great music is for everyone’.
