Learning a musical instrument at primary school can boost a child’s confidence and learning in other areas, a report suggests. However, a poll has suggested that fewer children are learning to play a musical instrument than in their parents’ generation.

Music has a profound influence on the development of a child. Even the foetus responds to musical signals, moving in synchrony to a rhythm and even continuing moving after the music has stopped! (Sallenbach, 1993)

Purvizion has the advantage of being a facility that offers both out-of-school care and music instrument tuition in combination.

Purvizion will work together with extended schools to support the delivery of high quality childcare, therefore offering support for parents and carers.
