Students at a special needs school in Anglesey are enjoying a new-found confidence after a class-full of musical instruments were donated by musicians in Warwickshire.

Music is an integral part of the curriculum for the children at Canolfan Addysg y Bont, Anglesey Special School, in Llangefni.

The children have been donated of ten plastic trombones known as pBones.

pBone is the world's first plastic trombone and has opened up a whole new world of music to the children at the school, whose ages range from 3 to 18.

An instrument that traditionally has not always been accessible to youngsters is now available to children of all ages and all abilities.

One of the key ambitions of pBone developers is to introduce brass to a wider range of young people in particular and to encourage them to participate in music.

Canolfan Addysg y Bont caters for a range of special educational needs and music is an important, therapeutic medium.

The school's band: 'pBand' has performed to parents and friends of the school.

For many of the parents, this was the first time their child had performed in public.
