Questions were asked in the House.........

Following on from the recent "Sound of Silence'"campaign when the Musicians Union asked me to speak on their behalf to BBC Radio stations nationwide about the shrinking opportunities for children from poorer backgrounds to learn an instrument in school, I was invited to put the case to a House of Commons inquiry into social mobility in the Arts.

So, off I trundled to the Houses of Parliament and I told them what I thought. Makes a change from my usual audience of unsuspecting strangers and old ladies at the bus stop.

Check out the picture. 3 MPs, 2 Lords and  a tubby little Trumpeter. 

Five Goooooooold Riiiiingggsss.........
