Letter: Schools off key

Sir: Your article deals only with the minor issue of instruments available in our schools. The major issue is that talented mathematicians, scientists or linguists will receive their tuition free whereas promising musicians will have to pay for it. They often have to request to be excused from other lessons for instrument tuition, and have to catch up missed work and often attend school concert rehearsals, good PR for the schools, in their own time.
