Musician, broadcaster and BPI Chair YolanDa Brown will next month present a four part series on Scala Radio putting the spotlight on music education. Looking at the importance of offering music lessons in schools, Brown will talk to the likes of Julian Lloyd Webber, Anne Dudley and Jess Gillam.
According to Radio Today, on the programme – called ‘Music Lessons’ – “YolanDa will tell some of the positive stories about music education in this country and explore the emotional and social impact of delivering free-at-the-point-of-access music education to all state school children, as well as the wider economic effect of music education on the music industry in the UK”.
Says Brown: “Music is not just melody or rhythm; it’s the very heartbeat that sustains us. We are blessed to have fantastic schools, organisations, charities, music hubs and passionate individuals who tirelessly work to bring music into the lives of children”.
“Through this series”, she adds, “we will celebrate their accomplishments, share heartwarming tales, and also address the gaps where more work needs to be done, ensuring that the symphony of music education continues to resonate for generations to come”.
‘Music Lessons With YolanDa Brown’ will air on Scala Radio each Sunday in September at 6pm.
