Musician Rick Wakeman has spoken of his disappointment at the lack of good music education in schools.

It comes after an Ofsted report found that quality music education only reached a minority of pupils in England.

The former Yes keyboardist told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon: "I do find it disappointing when I go into schools and it doesn't exist anymore."

He added, "It's such a great shame because music and drama are a way for children and pupils to express themselves... who perhaps can't express themselves well in academic ways."
