I’m sure you need no convincing about the benefits for children and young people of learning to play a musical instrument. Across the country, however, fewer children and young people are choosing orchestral/band instruments. Part of the reason may be that children and parents are simply unaware of the range of options available and how
rewarding it can be to learn. To help address this, Herefordshire Music Service has launched a new page on its website; ‘Choosing an instrument’. It’s designed to help
children and their parent/carers make an informed choice about the instrument that is best for them. It includes pictures, information and brief video clips with instruments introduced by children and young people. The videos have been produced by Brighton and Hove Music and Arts and are used with their kind permission. Please take a look by following this link.
