Throughout March, we'll be having a pre-Easter month of ukulele workshops and offers. If you're already a player or want to have a go, we'll have sessions covering the basics through to more advanced techniques. We're also offering part-exchanges to upgrade to better, or bigger, ukuleles as well as offering free gig bags and hard cases with all ukuleles over £150.00. More news and offers to come over the next few days as well as some blog posts on the differences between ukulele sizes and woods.

We're currently at the Rheged Centre for the Cumbrian Music Education Conference. A lot of great talks and ideas being shared from groups and musicians all aimed at schools to help them build on their music education in the classroom. Recent years and funding cuts have seen many of the art budgets being slashed and music ignored for 'Core Subjects'. At Lakeland Music, our staff members have degrees in Maths, History and Accountancy; whilst we don't underestimate the importance of core subjects, we also know the value of music. Music, as any experienced musician will tell you, is based around maths but can be approached in a way that makes it accessible to anyone.

Music can build relationships, friendships, confidence and aptitude in so many fields as well as providing people with an escape and something fun to do that can be unbelievable rewarding. Unfortunately, music is sometimes expensive, and often elitist. That's why music education in schools is so important; it levels the field and gives everyone a chance and opportunity to try different instruments, learn about music and benefit from the doors it opens. It gives every child, regardless of economic or social background, the chance to learn the basics, learn an instrument and opens up the ability for young people to learn a skill or find a hobby that could last a lifetime and change their lives. Some kids struggle with maths, science and english and this can seriously knock confidence from a young age. These same kids can excel at music, drama, art and design; this can give them the confidence back and give a platform for further academic success.

As such, it's an extraordinary privilege to be here advocating for music education and sharing our knowledge and experience with representatives and delegates of Cumbria's primary and secondary schools.

Fantastic new Yamaha range now in stock. This includes both the electric and acoustic versions of the THR5 battery and mains powered amps. These are fantastic for their size and weight and are thoroughly recommended. Check out this video to see and hear the range of effects and features.

Slight rearrange this afternoon of our Brass and Woodwind wall. Managed to make space for the new J Michael additions. Particularly like their new student flute, alto saxophone and trumpet. Great sound and feel at a very modest price. What do you think?
