Why learning music at school is so important

Do you still have music lessons at school?

Music supply in state schools is decreasing and some pupils in Year 9 no longer have compulsory lessons.

Dennis Coleman is a 16-year-old singer who is going around schools to encourage young pupils to pick up an instrument and get involved with music.

Some people say learning music is just as important as Maths and English as it can help with things like mental health.
