Music Lessons

Which Instruments Can I Learn?

The National Plan for Education highlights the important role which music has as part of a young person’s education. Singing or playing a musical instrument really enriches children and young people’s lives as well having a positive impact on other aspects of education and learning. There are so many different instruments to choose from representing a wide range of musical styles – something for everyone!
