Oxford University students are sharing the joy of music with young schoolchildren.

It is a collaboration between the Faculty of Music at the world's top ranking university and St Frideswide Primary School in the city.

The Third Year students are teaching Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils as part of a degree module on Music Education.

They are supported and mentored by teachers as they deliver the lessons online.

This is a fantastic programme, which makes valuable links between the University and local children. I am so glad that we're able to offer this music specialism provision to our children, at a time when their mental health and wellbeing is a big priority.
