Laura Mvula warns school cuts will leave music as preserve of the wealthy

This is a thoughtful piece from the Guardian by Laura Mvula on the need to continue supporting and encouraging a broad base of subjects in school.  Especially music.

Those of you who know me will know, I play the guitar, badly, and music is a big part of our family.  As we seek sustainable ways of life, creative ways of living will be important and everyone having access to training and opportunity will be essential.

What is more, music is one place we learn grit; practising over time encourages long term vision and practice.  Another important factor.

So support the arts in schools, especially music.

Children’s cultural horizons will be limited to the X Factor, says singer and former teacher
