Too much music education does not reflect the reality of how young people engage with music, according to the inquiry from the Music Commission.

It says there is a risk this "disconnect" means current teaching methods may become outdated.

It argues technology could help stop music from disappearing from schools...

The report also says that the focus of music education should be ensuring every child is supported to take music further.

A report by the Musicians' Union last year suggested poorer children are being priced out of learning musical instruments.
Children in low income households were half as likely to take music lessons, it found.
