Children in Need funds help Edinburgh children read music

Learning to read music can be daunting.

A project funded by BBC Children in Need is helping children take their first steps in learning to read music.

Figurenotes is a system designed to demystify the first steps in learning to read music by using colours and symbols.

The Drake Music project, in Edinburgh, has received almost £5,000 from Children in Need to pay towards running costs.
