FREE music lessons are being offered to all ages when they join up online with Gloucestershire Music.

People are invited to sign up and receive a free introductory session at centres across the county including Newent Community School and Sixth Form Centre, Newent.

Entrants need to be aged seven or above and have a desire to learn.

No musical knowledge is necessary for the free session and people will be given the chance to try a clarinet, trumpet, baritone or violin before deciding which one is for them.

Cllr Paul McLain, Cabinet member for children and young people and commissioning, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to try a musical instrument free of charge and take up a new hobby if you enjoy the session.”

Gloucestershire Music has one of the largest stocks of instruments in the UK offering a wide variety of activities at their national award winning music centres.
