Make this school year a musical one

Music is an integral part of everyone’s day, and all over the world musical stars have been made famous not just for decades but for centuries.

Make this school year a musical one

An interest in playing music often begins at a young age; remember learning to play the recorder? That kind of early interaction with music has led to some spectacular musical talent over the years.

Telford & Wrekin Music offer a full range of music tuition on a wide range of musical instruments to children in both primary and secondary schools across the borough.

There is something for everyone, whether it is tuition in small groups focusing on technique in schools, or larger groups after school, there is plenty on offer.

Telford & Wrekin Music has been teaching young people to make music in local schools since 2007 and has over 20 professional musicians, educators and performers to help unlock the talent in every child.

Owning or purchasing an instrument isn’t a barrier to taking part either as the music service will hire out most instruments for children to use and practice with.

If they wish, the children will have the opportunity to perform at local venues as well as the chance to take music exams and gain formal qualifications if the bug for playing takes hold.

Councillor Gilly Reynolds, cabinet member for Education, Employment and Regeneration, said: “Learning a musical instrument is excellent for children of all ages, and while they will be learning to play the instrument and read music, they will also be developing a whole host of other skills including performing and creativity which can have the added benefit of enhancing their learning and aspirations outside of the music lesson environment.

“Having the opportunity to play a musical instrument is fantastic and I would urge parents to have a look at the musical instruments and tuition on offer and consider it for the upcoming school year which is fast approaching.”

Prices for music tuition is just £87.50 per term, with one to one tuition (£160 per term).  Instrument hire starts from just £17.50 per term.
