Nina, our new Ambassador!

Nina, our new Ambassador!

We are very proud to announce Nina Schofield as a new Ambassador for our charity. Nina said “Music is the universal language that connects everyone. Throughout our lives our memories become intertwined with certain songs and for that music becomes a friend as well as an outlet. That’s why the work Music For All is doing is so vital. Learning to play an instrument develops confidence, helps knit friendships and opens us up to new forms of creative expression. Plus it’s incredibly fun and rewarding!”
And that is not all!
