Mu­sic tu­tor sees cash roll in to tune of £440

Glamorgan Gazette - - News -

A MU­SIC tu­tor ran the Cardiff Half Marathon dressed as a clar­inet rais­ing more than £440 to sup­port Brid­gend County Mu­sic Ser­vice.

Jonathan Main­war­ing is a part-time peri­patetic brass teacher whose cos­tume was orig­i­nally made for a school mu­sic pro­duc­tion by Kate Bar­low, who he met through his work as a pro­fes­sional mu­si­cian. He said: “When I asked her if she could make me look like a clar­inet, I never dreamed that she would do such a fan­tas­tic job.”

The mu­sic ser­vice teaches more than 2,000 pupils a week, of­fer­ing lessons on all or­ches­tral in­stru­ments and also whole class ses­sions such as samba drum­ming, pBone, ukulele and recorder. In­stru­men­tal lessons are pro­vided free at point of de­liv­ery and can also in­clude a loan of an in­stru­ment free of charge.

The money raised will di­rectly im­pact all lo­cal pupils by al­low­ing the ser­vice to buy new in­stru­ments and re­sources.
