Brass and woodwind may be key to easing asthma problems.

MUSIC could be the key to tackling one of Merseyside's biggest health problems.

A music school in Everton hopes brass and woodwind instruments will give crucial relief to asthma sufferers.

Staff at Big Buzz music school have already seen the benefits to pupils coping with asthma.

Project developer Annie Spiers said: "Learning a woodwind or brass instrument can help with a problem otherwise quite debilitating."

Asthma nurses from Alder Hey have shared their expertise.

Staff invite children and adults with asthma to the Albion House Youth Club in Albion Street, Everton, to give the instruments a go. Ring 0151-263 6116.
