Pupils 'missing out on music'.

PUPILS in Coventry are missing out on music because schools are spending money set aside for music lessons on other things, say union reps.

Coventry representatives of the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers say they aren't surprised by an Office for Standards in Education report saying half of all music lessons in schools nationally aren't up to scratch.

Coventry NASUWT secretary Victor Aguera says in Coventry part of the problem is the system of funding some music provision which allows schools to opt out of spending money on music lessons from visiting specialist teachers.

But he said there were many music teachers in the city doing an excellent job despite the barriers.
