The music plays on for Cardiff's young musicians


Young musicians from Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan can continue to learn, practice and enjoy music during the current health crisis.

Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Music Service has developed a host of new digital ways to deliver music tuition, one to one lessons and rehearsals.

Staff have adapted to new ways of working, organising virtual get-togethers and practices so that bands, choirs and orchestras can continue to play together as well as providing opportunities for families to enjoy music together.

Emma Coulthard Head of Service said: “Music unites us all and is the best wellbeing tool I know. 

“We are delighted to be able to keep our pupils playing and excited to be embracing new technology to reach even more pupils.”
