Review into musical education announced by government
The government has announced its intention to get more young people playing musical instruments.
Education secretary Michael Gove has announced an independent review into the state of music education is to take place and will be led by Darren Henley, the managing director of Classic FM.
The assessment intends to examine how music funding can benefit a greater number of students and ways in which young people can be offered more opportunities to learn an instrument inside and outside of school.
"Too many children in state schools are denied the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument," said Mr Gove. "Evidence suggests that learning an instrument can improve numeracy, literacy and behaviour."
It is expected that the review team will be in a position to be able to make their recommendations before the end of the year.
Earlier this month, research conducted by BBC Worldwide found that the guitar is the most popular musical instrument for boys to learn, while it is the recorder for girls.
