More locations are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Tony Followell, Chairman of the Trustees of Music for All, said:

“The positive impact of learning to play a musical instrument is well known, and the past 18 months have highlighted the enormous benefits that music can offer to individual well-being and social cohesion. The universal appeal of music speaks to all of us and we want everyone to have the opportunity to experience music creation for themselves.

“As a charity, we understand that not everyone can afford instruments and lessons or have access to the services that would support their musical creation.

“We hope to spread joy and inspiration with the universal gift of music across the Isle of Wight.”
